Sources used for identification of wildflowers shown on these pages and regions where they occur see Credits
 
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.

Tetratheca hirsuta Black Eyed Susan
Purple with dark pointed centre of fused stamens, five petals, several flowers along an upright stem with dark green leaves in clusters of four where the stem divides into branches or flower stalks. 
Flowers above appear bell shaped and foliage is slightly different. Both show hairiness on stem and leaves.  Leaves on those at left have groups of three leaves branching from the stem, with leaves having an irregular edge.  I am uncertain as t whether these are two different species.
