Common Hovea

Common Hovea 1

While we were walking along the bushland trails in Kings Park recently, we spotted these purple flowers hiding in the undergrowth. They are Common Hovea (Hovea trisperma), which despite its common name, isn’t actually all that common in Perth.

You can also see it in Bold Park along the Hovea Trail, but it isn’t in flower there yet. The reported flowering season is May-Nov, but in our experience it has usually finished flowering well before the end of winter.
