Over recent days I have been showing photos of the flowers of Australian native plants growing in the Pangarinda Arboretum. This huge collection of plants is found at Wellington on the Murray river in South Australia, just over an hour’s drive south east of the capital Adelaide.
No matter what time of the year you visit there will be something flowering. Some of the most spectacular flowers are found on the various species of Banksias. Today I feature several of these wonderful blooms.Click on the photos to enlarge the image.
Over recent days I have been showing photos of the flowers of Australian native plants I took earlier this year at Pangarinda Arboretum near Wellington in South Australia. I feature several more plants today with more to come in the next week.
Pangarinda Arboretum is on the eastern side of the River Murray at Wellington, South Australia, just a short distance east of the ferry crossing. This large garden has been planted up and maintained by local native plant enthusiasts on land provided by the local council.
The huge collection of many thousands of plants from all over Australia always has something in flower, so every time we visit the camera is kept busy. The whole property is fenced to keep out rabbits, so if you ever visit, make sure the gate is securely closed. Entry is free at any time.
Over recent days I have been sharing some photos of Australian native flowers taken at one of our favourite places to visit. Pangarinda Arboretum near Wellington is about a half hour drive from home in Murray Bridge and just over an hour SE of Adelaide.
The arboretum is a large collection of native plants from all over Australia. In my many visits there I have always found a good variety of plants flowering, so my camera always gets a good workout.
It is always open to the public for free. All we ask is that you make sure the gate is closed after you drive through. This is to keep the rabbits out.
