Flora: Wreath Flower!

Pinda is a very small town not far from Mullewa Western Australia.  It's here in Pinda along a lonely 'Bull Dust' Rd that one will find the Wreath Flower plant in the late winter.  Apparently there are only a couple of places in this world where these plants can be found, Pinda being one.


These Wreath Flowers are not prickly. In the middle of nowhere they grow, though not plentiful.


 They come in a few different colours.
