Star of Bethlehem

Star of Bethlehem 1

We recently spotted this colourful Star of Bethlehem (Calectasia narragara) flowering in Kings Park. The striking plant grows along the lower west coast of Western Australia, from about Geraldton to Cape Leeuwin, and flowers from about June to September. Pity it doesn’t flower at Christmas!
