Swan River Myrtle

Swan River Myrtle 1

We went for a walk in Kings Park yesterday. The winter/spring wildflowers are out in force, including plenty of Swan River Myrtle (Hypocalymma robustum). This pretty pink shrub can be erect or sprawling (as shown above) and grows from just north of Perth to about Augusta on the south coast. Its flowering season is June to November.
