Cockies Tongues

Cockies Tongues 7

Here is another wildflower from the current exhibition at Council House in Perth, “The Fabric of Wildflowers”. The flowers are by Thelma Knox and this one is a bunch of Cockies Tongues (Templetonia retusa). We photographed the real Cockies Tongues flowers below in North Fremantle earlier this year. This native wildflower grows along the West Australian coast from about Sharks Bay to the South Australian border, and mainly flowers in winter and early spring.
