Cockies Tongue

Cockies Tongue 1

With its bright red pea flowers, Cockies Tongue (Templetonia retusa) is one of the delights of the West Australian bush in winter. The official flowering season is April to November, but in our experience it mainly flowers in June-July.

We saw these Cockies Tongue flowers a week ago in Manning Park, about 10km south of Fremantle in the city of Cockburn.
