Flowers of the Mallee region in Victoria and South Australia

The flowers of the Mallee are amazing and survive in a rugged environment. Approximately 300 species of plants have been identified in the area. The following are an example of ones flowering in the Spring. A dryland garden was established in Walpeup which showcased some of these plants.

Mallee flowers are best discovered when you stop, pause and really study the environment. They are normally very small yet offer a diverse and beautiful range of styles, textures and shapes that once you start to appreciate can really begin to enjoy searching for and identifying different species. Here is a small selection for your enjoyment. Thanks for Jocelyn Lindner from Cowangie for assisting in the naming of these plants.
