For Cee’s FOTD, from the tropics of Australia.
For Cee’s FOTD
For Cee’s FOTD, another Australian native.
My entry into Cee’s FOTD (flower of the day), today.
Widespread across arid areas of Australia, this little flower keeps nodding in the wind and was a hard catch for Cee’s flower of the day. The second photo captures the colour better, but not the detail.
The blue asymmetry, fan flower or scaevola, is native to Southern Australia. Its my entry in Cee’s flower of the day and can also be found in purple and white (although I found the white hard to capture.
As the name suggests, the five petals are only on one side of the flower, making it asymmetrical. They can achieve some symmetry when there are four flowers around the central piece. A hardy ground-cover, it does well in arid conditions.
Native to Central Flinders Ranges, my flower of the day is called vildalda by the Adnyamathanha people.
