Western Australian Flora



The Eucalyptus Macrocarpa is a small gum tree unique to WA, this example is in the Kings Park Botanical Garden.

This web page contains a selection of pictures mostly taken in November, 2011, in Perth, Western Australia. Western Australia is home to thousands of unique plant species, evolved in isolation due to the deserts which separate this state from other habitats on the Australian continent. Western Australian wildflowers are often unique to the state and its predominantly arid climate. While the Southern region of the state is forested, the Northern regions are arid, with large expanses of desert, scrubland, and spinifex grass.

The Eucalyptus caesia or Silver Princess is a small gum tree indigenous to the wheatbelt of Western Australia. It is well suited to suburbia as it is small but grows quickly, but is like many Eucalypts maintenance intensive as its characteristic drooping branches fracture easily. This example is the red flowering subspecies, photographed in Melbourne, Victoria.
