Everlastings

Everlasting Daisy 1

Yesterday we went to Kings Park, which is within eyesight of the Perth CBD. We normally walk along the bushland trails, spotting wildflowers in their natural setting, but this time we went to the botanic garden section to admire the massed display of wildflowers for the Kings Park Festival.

The most popular flowers at the festival are the spectacular Everlastings (Rhodanthe chlorocephala), which grow in scattered locations across the centre of Western Australia. Their common name comes from the fact that the flowers are very papery and will last for a long time if they are dried.
