Acacia iteaphilla, commonly called Flinders Ranges Wattle,
is one of those wonderful plants that bloom in winter
with a delicately sweet scent.
This one we planted along the road verge next to one of our
dams some 18 years ago and it performs beautifully
It is so nice to do just garden posts for a while,
after all, there is so much in a simple garden to give one joy
Hi It is still blooming wonderfully after 18 years. MargaretReplyDelete
Hello there - visiting from Todays FlowersReplyDelete
Wattle of any sort is my favourite flower - just love it. Know when it blooms that spring will be along soon!
Great to have a winter bloomer.ReplyDelete
Incredible to have a plant that blooms in winter right in your own garden! Thanks for sharing Arija!ReplyDelete
What a lovely plant Arija, thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
lovely tiny little bursts of color!ReplyDelete
I agree with Tex, lovely little bursts of color they are indeed! Great captures for the day, Arija!!ReplyDelete
Hi Arija.. Nothing blooms in winter here ; )!!ReplyDelete
What a lovely treat to have to see in the garden!!
It must give you a lot of joy, seeing this plant bloom year after year. I bet there are a lot of memories. Hope you are doing well this winter (summer here).ReplyDelete
That is a long time Arija....lovely... MichelleReplyDelete
I agree that it is lovely to post flowers and gardens. --ReplyDelete
Winter blooms are real treasures, especially when they're perennials and when they have a lovely fragrance.
I forgot in my comment on the post below to say that the ladybug delighted me too!
Ah Arija you have captured the colour of the wattle perfectly - I wish they'd use a softer lemon and sage green to represent our national colours, not the garish block yellow and dark green we are stuck with - it always grates on me when I see it featured on uniforms and flags, but guess that's the finickity artist in me, my mind has never been sports-set.ReplyDelete
I'd better get off my soap boxbefore I start on our stuffy national anthem without even a hint of didgeridoo featured!!
