Looks like it’s going to be an early, strong flowering in the sandplains of the Great Western Woodlands, with many Verticordias and Grevilleas and this Eremophila already putting on a beautiful show. ‘Landscope’ (Spring 2012, Vol. 28 (1)) has a good article by botanist Andrew Brown about ‘The spectacular wildflowers of the Great Western Woodlands’. If you’re thinking of a spring drive through the GWW, you’ll find Andrew’s article an enjoyable introduction to the wonderful array of Eremophilas, orchids and native lilies, including where to find them.
