Sources used for identification of wildflowers shown on these pages and regions where they occur see Credits hereunder.
 
These pages will feature some of the wildflowers we have photographed in Western Australia, and where possible, identified.  If you are able to help identify further flowers, or correct any I may have wrong, please contact us.
 
Information given for each species will give botanical name, known common names, describe the flower, give time of year it flowered, and where it was photographed, and the areas it occurs in.  Names have been matched to Florabase which has also been used to show distribution.
 
Some alien plants commonly thought to be native by travellers have been included, noting that they are alien to Western Australia.  Many of these come from South Africa and originated as garden plants, but others have come from places such as Europe.  Some are native to other states but not to Western Australia.  Many are vigorous and overtake our delicate native plants, and are considered weeds in bushland.

See some of these wildflower in larger sized photos on our Flickr pages.

For further detail of Orchids, I use the book "Field Guide to the Orchids of Western Australia"  (2013) by Andrew Brown, Kingley Dixon, Christopher French, Garry Brockman.  ISBN 9780980348149.  This is currently out of print, but may still be available in some bookstores.

How to identify non native species which are established in bushland habitats?  These are often referred to as weeds when in our bushland. A weed is simply a plant growing in the wrong place, and are often plants brought into the country or state as a garden flower, but have escaped and thrived. Some may be farm pasture plants which have similarly been able to spread into our native bushland.  Check these useful links.
