Cockie’s Tongue

Cockies Tongue 1

Cockie’s Tongue (Templetonia retusa) is a fairly common native shrub in Perth, and in coastal areas stretching from Geraldton to Albany. It flowers from April to September, but this plant is the only one that we have seen in flower (or even with buds) so far this year. It is growing on Buckland Hill, in the shade beneath a large Tuart tree.
