Snail Hakea

Snail Hakea 1

We saw a lot of this white flowering hakea in John Forrest National Park, in the Perth Hills, last week. It is Snail Hakea (Hakea cristata) and looks a bit like Harsh Hakea on steroids.

Snail Hakea is only native to a relatively small area inland from Perth, but is rated as being non-threatened. It has very woody seed pods, as shown below.
