Dwarf Sheoak

Dwarf Sheoak 1

We stopped to look at the Dwarf Sheoak (Allocasuarina humilis) in Perth’s Bold Park recently and noticed that it is in flower at present, even though the reported flowering season is May to November. This small sheoak only grows to a height of 1-2m.

There are separate female plants (above) with small red flowers, and male plants (below) with brown-orange flowers.
