Kings Park in December


Asmid-summer approaches, there are still some interesting wildflowers to admire in the bushland of Kings Park in Perth. At present you can see lots of the amusingly named Prince of Wales Feathers (above) and the not so common Pink Summer Calytrix (below).


The Sand-dune Fringed Lily is looking great.


Tricoryne tenella is covered in small yellow flowers.


There are also three different species of Jacksonia, all with rather similar-looking flowers. This is Waldjumi (Jacksonia sericea), which is a low growing, prostrate plant.


Stinkwood (Jacksonia sternbergiana, below) is a shrub/tree with glossy green foliage which grows to a height of several metres.


And Grey Stinkwood (Jacksonia furcellata, below) is also a shrub, but has dull grey-green foliage.
