Sensitive waratahs love some shelter from the afternoon sun
PERHAPS one of the most spectacular of all Australian native flowering plants is the floral emblem of New South Wales, telopea speciosissima.
One of Australia's unique flora are the Waratahs. Belonging to the genus Telopea, family Proteaceae, these flowers have become increasingly popular as not only floral arrangements, but also as garden plantings. Well known as crimson red in colour, they have also appeared in the wild in other colours from pink to yellow and white. With modern cultivation, these variations have been selected and bred to be made available for our gardens.
