Love Australian Wildflowers? Take Heart: Epacris Is Out!

1 May

Down by the river,  Epacris is out in flower.

I always love to see them.

They are a native fuchsia, and their colouring and form is both very charming and unusual for Australian wildflowers.

Whenever it’s possible, I like to walk Chicki down a track to the end of the baths, where these amazing  plants can be found.

Such a pretty place!

    Is that what they are? Epacris, a native fuscia. I see them a lot when walking in the bush and they are lovely. Nice photos. 🙂

      Technically they are known as Epacris Longiflora , or commonly as Fuchsia heath or native Fuchsia. Very pretty little shrubs. Thanks for kudos regarding photos. 🙂

    Such a pretty plant. I have a fuschia but it’s not in flower yet and I’m looking forward to seeing it.
