Native Wisteria

Native Wisteria 1

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

Basket Bush 7

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.
