The reported flowering season for Native Wisteria (Hardenbergia comptoniana) is July-Oct. However this twining/climbing plant got off to an early start this year – it has been flowering in Kings Park and Bold Park for most of June. The plant is common in coastal areas of the southwest of Western Australia, from about Dongara to Albany.
Basket Bush is now in full flower. You can see plenty of it growing in both Kings Park and Bold Park in Perth. The flowers are quite pretty, but very small – only about the size of a match head. When it is in flower, this large shrub has a distinctive, heady perfume.
We saw this Swan River Myrtle (Hypocalymma robustum) growing in the bushland of Kings Park in Perth. The stems of this native shrub are covered in buds at present, but we haven’t seen any in full bloom yet. Its reported flowering season is June-November.
Prickly Moses (Acacia pulchella) is covered in buds at present, with just a few yellow flower heads in bloom. We saw this one in Bold Park in Perth recently, but you will find this thorny wattle bush in many parks, native gardens and areas of bushland in Perth.
Cutleaf Hibbertia (Hibbertia cuneiformis) has a reported flowering season of Jan-Mar/Jun-Nov. There aren’t many flowers on it yet, but we did see a few flowers recently in the bushland on the north side of Lake Joondalup in Perth’s northern suburbs. You will also find this plant growing in Bold Park, though we haven’t noticed any flowers there yet.
