I posted once before on the flowers blooming in Brisbane (QLD, Australia), but all of those photos were from the Australian summer (i.e. November/December). Things bloom all year round in Brisbane, so I thought I’d share some of the plants from a winter perspective today (in honour of the Australian winter).
Silky Oak (Grevillea sp.)
Casuarinas are actually angiosperms, even though they look like gymnosperms!
Praxelis (Praxelis clematidea)
Another Grevillea sp.
Eucalypt means true covering and refers to the operculum that covers the flower
Foxtail palm (Wodyetia sp.)
Wattle…there are no leaves on this tree! Wattles have specially flattened leaf petioles called “phyllodes”
Thyme honeymyrtle (isn’t that a great name?)
Wattle flowers up close
Praxelis (Praxelis clematidea) invasive
Fireweed (Senecio madagascariensis) invasive
Some ornamental pea
Queensland Silver Wattle
Mother of millions (invasive)
