Wildflowers of Australia: Flannel Flowers

Flannel Flowers in the breeze

Flannel Flowers in the breeze

Right now, the Flannel Flowers are in bloom. Every time I visit the local bushland park, I see their lovely, daisy-like flowers.

They seem to be very choosy in  where they will grow. The greatest number here are beside the road, though there a few clumps in the broader bushland. Their heads bob about in the breeze.

Enjoy!

    Pretty little flowers Margaret. Why flannel flowers? Do they feel like the material?

      The stems, branches and leaves are covered with a downy substance that resembles flannel, hence their common name.
      They are members of the carrot family 🙂
