Flannel Flowers by the river

Flannel Flowers are one of the few native plants that have been honoured by their appearance on Australian postage stamps.

Their simple beauty is a delight. Currently, they are in flower in our local park, and have become one of the highlights of our going to visit.

Enjoy!

By the way, here’s a link to my third post on my new blog. Thanks go to those who visit!

    They’re really quite striking. It strikes me they must also be quite hardy if the river is the salt water one you swim in as there’s likely to be salt in the air?

      It is a salt-water river, David, but the air doesn’t smell like sea-air. They are hardy in the bush, but particular about where they’ll grow. Reputedly very hard to grow in a suburban garden.

    I have never heard of these flowers, they are simple and beautiful.

      🙂 They aren’t common, but there are quite a few in our local bushland park.
