One thought on “BEAUTIFUL PLANTS FROM DOWN UNDER”

  1. Thank you for the beautiful pictures of Australian native plants. A common mistake, even in Australia, is to include the Protea shown.
    Quote from the Australian Native Plants Society information.
    ‘The term ‘protea’ is used to cover a range of related plants in addition to the genus ‘Protea’, including Leucospermum and Leucadendron. Despite the frequent appearance of these ‘proteas’ in so-called native flower arrangements, they are not Australian plants. They are native to South Africa. The genus Protea has given its name to a family of related plants (the Proteaceae) and there are a number of Australian member of this Protea family. These include Banksia,Grevillia, Hakea, Macadamia, Telopea (Waratah) and many others. End quote.
