Diplopeltis huegelii

Diplopeltis huegelii 3

We have noticed this straggly pink wildflower growing in many places beside the Zamia trail in Bold Park recently. It’s called Diplopeltis huegelii and has no common name that we know of. If you look at the flowers closely, they almost look like garden escapes. However they are actually native plants that grow in coastal areas of Western Australia from about Carnarvon to the Swan coastal plain.
