Australian Wildflowers

These were taken in the Wingello State Forest, Summer/Autumn 2011.

The top row of flowers are: Patersonia sericea (Native Iris), Hibbertia scandens (Climbing Guinea Flower), Goodenia hederacea (Ivy Goodenia).
The second row are: Helichrysum bracteatum (Yellow Paper Daisy or Golden Everlasting), Dampiera stricta (Blue Dampiera), Helichrysum leucopsideum (Satin Everlasting)
The third row are repeats of the above.

The Native Iris (flowering spring-summer), Ivy Goodenia (spring-autumn) and Satin Everlasting (summer) are all found in open forest, woodland and heath. The Yellow Paper Daisy (spring-autumn) is found in sheltered forest on better soils. On the tablelands the Climbing Guinea Flower is found in moist forest gullies and flowers all year.

  1. Magnifique! Merci camarade

  2. It’s strange for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere to read in June of 2011 about photographs that have already been taken in the autumn of 2011. Here in Texas, where the afternoon temperatures have been reaching 36 or 37 degrees Celsius, autumn is a long long way away.
