Calling All Gardeners

10 Dec

Calling all gardeners!

Does anyone know the name of this charming yellow bloom?

It’s growing in a cultivated section of our local, bushland park. I’m guessing it may be a native… but I certainly cannot recognise it. It’s quite tall: a couple of metres, perhaps, and indisputably stunning!

Here’s your chance to solve the mystery, so green thumbs, don’t be shy….

What is it?

What is it?


I’ll happily send a pdf of my sixth collection of Short Stories, ‘Encore’, to the first person who names it correctly.

So what are you waiting for. Put on your thinking caps…..

    It reminds me a little of a poppy.

    Might be a hollyhock

      It’s similar, but KidazzleInk has now supplied the answer. : It’s a relative of the Hibiscus.

    Hi Lynette…we’ve always called it a “Cotton Tree” You may have heard of the area up on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland that is known by the same name. It’s evidently a member of the Hibiscus family. You can find a little more info on it at this address. There’s probably lots of other sites with information as often grows well in seaside areas.

      Well, I’m very impressed by your knowledge, and thanks for solving the mystery! Hope you enjoy ‘Encore’. 🙂

        I think it’s probably just that they are very common up here in the coastal areas of Queensland. Glad to be of help.

    I’ll certainly enjoy reading your book.I actually really like short stories as they fit in a little better around my busy life.
