Flannel Flowers @ Diggers Camp

Flannel Flowers, Actinotus helianthi, are a common and much loved wildflower that grows in the sandy coastal heaths of New South Wales and Queensland. They look like a daisy but they are related to carrots!

  2. I wish they grew up here in the tropical north of Queensland! They are just the most beautiful flower.

  4. I know there's probably a plausible reason why they're called 'flannel flowers' but they're just too pretty to be associated with something so ordinaire! Lovely image Mark.

  6. Beautiful... are they quite small? If so I think we have a wild flower here that is similar...
