Wild Violet

Wild Violet 1

We noticed these Wild Violets (Hybanthus calycinus) flowering in the bushland of Kings Park recently. They are a bit ahead of the game, since their official flowering season is “mainly Jul to Oct”. With their delicate mauve flowers, they make you feel that spring is in the air, even though it is still three months away. These native plants grow along the West Australian coast from about Geraldton to Augusta.
