Lesmurdie Falls in September

Lesmurdie Falls Regional Park 1

We went for a hike at Lesmurdie Falls Mundy Regional Park in the Perth Hills a few days back. The wildflowers are in spectacular bloom at present.

There were masses of Sticky Starflower (Calytrix glutinosa, above) growing beside the walking trails on the north side of the falls and creek.

Couch Honeypot (Banksia dallanneyi), an odd prostrate Banksia, was in flower in a few places.

There were a number of carnivorous Drosera species, including the pretty Pink Rainbow (Drosera menziesii) above. The insect on the flower isn’t in danger of being eaten – the leaves shown below are the part of the plant that traps insects.

And we also spotted Diplopeltis huegelii (no common name that we know of) growing in some places. You can also see plenty of this plant flowering in Perth’s Bold Park at present.
