Wildflowers in Western Australia
Something about the ADAMS Pinnacles tour that caught my attention was the mention of wildflowers. I’m a big fan of flowers. Preferably colorful and in large volumes (I’ve been to the two largest flower gardens in the world, in Dubai and the Netherlands).
Did you know that Western Australia has the world’s largest collection of wildflower species? 12,000 to be precise! There are so many wildflowers that they can (apparently) be seen from space during blooming season.
When I moved to Perth one thing I noticed was that the plants are completely different to what you can find in Europe. Even near the city you can see the colorful wildflowers peeping out from gardens and pavement verges.
Wildflower season is between September and November, so I didn’t expect to see any on this tour. However, we did get to stop at Western Wildflower Farm which produces dried wildflowers for export to the other Australian states and worldwide.
