Photos of Pangarinda Arboretum, Wellington, South Australia part 12

Chamelaucium bush, Pangarinda Arboretum, South Australia

A spectacular Australian plant in a huge field of spectacular plants would have to be the Chamelaucium group of native plants, two of them shown here. When not in flower they are a nondescript plant, but when they burst into flower the colours can be almost overwhelming.

These photos were taken of several bushes in the Pangarinda Arboretum near Wellington in South Australia earlier this year. In a huge collection of wonderful plants it is hard to stand out from the crowd, but this species certainly does, especially on a dull winter’s day like our last visit.

You can see more flowers and plants from this collection in recent posts here on this site, and thereĀ  is more to come in the next few weeks.
