Bob, do you know what this flower is? https://onemillionphotographs.com/2019/06/15/6939-more-pointy-flowers/
(Sniff Sniff – the flower bloodhound (i’m not going with pitbull – sorry!) is on the trail. 😉
I believe that’s a member of the hypericum genus of the hypericaceae Family. Probably H. calycinum. Also known as St John’s Wort (maybe the Creeping Wort variety?) or Aaron’s beard! 🙂
Damn.. I knew it was familiar but couldn’t make the association. I had a whole hillside of it next to my house in California! There is another one I saw a few days ago that was absolutely amazing. It looks like it would be South American, which is pretty much the same zone I think as Australia. If you know this one, you win the prize.. but I might not be able to find it. Thanks for this one, Bob.
I’ll be waiting – but no rush! 🙂
Okay, Bob. This is one of the strangest and most beautiful flowers I’ve ever seen. Is it a member of the pincuchion family, do you think? https://onemillionphotographs.com/2019/06/13/6912-to-the-point-in-all-directions/
Does this look familiar??? 🙂
Can i claim the prize yet?? 🙂
I’m wondering if it could be this plant? http://www.thinkstockphotos.in/image/stock-photo-leucospermum-cordifolium/486708738
Ha! Jinx.. After I posted this I did more investigation. We both wound up on the same site.
Actually, not the same site.. have a look at mine. I think it is the actual variety. So beautiful and odd.
Take a closer look at my POST link… all 3 flowers are the same species, just taken at slightly different stages of their bloom The leaves, the stamen and the actual flower sepals are identical. 🙂
I posted the flower on Nov 18!
