This gorgeous wildflower photo was taken this spring (05/09/11) at Jarowair and it has taken me this long to find out what it is called. Thanks to the Hunter Valley Backyard Nature Blog (http://hvbackyard.blogspot.com/search/label/Wildflowers) I was able to identify it today from the wonderful photos and information they had on their blog! Very happy indeed to put a name to this beautiful native wildflower. This particular plant was hidden amongst thick grasses on the edge of the dry creek bed at Jarowair. I do believe from memory that I have seen it here before but this is the first time I have recorded the sighting. It is a truly beautiful flower! J.G.
