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.

pointed leaves. Grows in thickets. Size of flowers can be seen in comparison to a five cent piece.

and all areas towards the coast between these town areas. Similar seen around Albany and Denmark flowering in March.
Tetraria octandra (identification not confirmed)

with fine cream to yellow petals giving it a shaggy appearance

the state, and from Lancelin to Albany.
Tetratheca affinis Tetratheca
Purple with dark pointed centre of fused stamens, five petals, several flowers along upright thickened
leaf free stem
Late Winter, Spring

lower Great Southern
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.
