|Blue Fingers, Cyanicula caerulea above,|
and Dusky Fingers, Petalostylis fuscatus (often still known as Caladenia fuscata)
|Leucopogon fletcheri, millions of individually tiny flowers |
can light up a forest floor!
Another contributor to the white theme are the multi-flowered Rice Flowers; they were originally described as Banksia, for the great Sir Joseph, but it was realised then that the name had already been taken.
|Pimelea linifolia; the bark fibres were valued by |
|Acacia baileyana; the name commemorates a veritable|
dynasty of 19th and early 20th century Australian
|Early Wattle, Acacia genistifolia, which having flowered through much of winter |
is about to hand over the baton to less hardy wattles; the name means 'gorse-leafed'.
|Acacia buxifolia - the name means just 'box-leafed', with no reference|
to containers. Buxus was the Latin name for an unrelated European tree;
from a resemblance to its hard timber came the name 'box' for
a group of Australian eucalypts.
