Winter Wildflowers

Tomorrow is the first day of spring, when Perthites start to think about spring wildflowers. What many don’t realise is that there are actually wildflowers all year round in Perth; they are just more plentiful in spring.

The photos shown here were taken in Bold Park, within eyesight of the CBD, during the past week. There are masses of wattle (top) and the last of the winter flowering Cockies Tongue (above).

There is also plenty of False Boronia (above) and Grey Cotton heads (below). If you want to know more about West Australian wildflowers, visit the Department of Parks and Wildlife website Florabase. Or check out our Perth Wildflowers blog.
