Geraldton Wax Plant (Lemon Drop). This decorative fragrant plant is new to Outback Pride Fresh - leaves and buds are completely edible and as its name suggests the yellow buds taste amazingly reminiscent of a 'lemon drop'. Just one of the new and exciting products that are now available for distribution thought T&F All States โ€“ This Australian native plant is naturally found in sandy coastal regions of Western Australia .This unique leaf and flower has been used since ancient times by First Nations peoples for both flavouring and as a skin balm. This Lemon Drops variety has a pleasant citrus flavour and adds visual impact to your culinary creations. Geraldton Wax brings the conversation to True Aussie Cuisine. We also, for a short time have a Ruby Red Geraldton Wax flower bud. #Grown with love for #Outbackpridefresh . #GeraldtonWax #geraldtonwaxlemondrops #lemondrops #RubyRedGeraldton Wax #mikeandgayle #successfulseason #goodharvest #sustainable #ethicalcultivation #australiannativefoods #grownwithlove #outbackpridefresh @tandfallstates #australiannativeproduce #australiannativefood #bushfood #bushherbs #bushtucker #australiannativeplants #indigenousfood #nswlargestprovidore
How beautiful are these new #banksia stamps from @auspost I adore Australian natives! I recently created a little Australian native garden with some grevellias and miniature grass in our yard. Itโ€™s my favorite little spot in our garden. I cannot wait until summer comes to be able to sit outside and enjoy a cool drink while enjoying the sight of my little garden bed ๐Ÿ’•
I love your creepy little faces so much ! #hardenbergia #regent #australiannativeplants #nativeflowers
Wherever I went in the garden yesterday there was the sound of bees taking advantage of the warm sunny weather and plethora of flowers. #grevilleas โ€˜firecracker โ€˜ and lavendulaceae #wattles #bees #australiannative #inmygarden #beekeeper #organicgardening #morningwalk #pollinatorgarden #australiannativeplants
As sun starts to rise over our newest natural pool, this is a stunning location to connect with nature. ๐Ÿƒ Relax at the end of the day, refreshed, reenergised ๐ŸŠ #naturalswimmingpool #phillipjohnsonlandscapes #connectwithnature

Eucalyptus risdonii, Risdon peppermint (Myrtaceae) . ๐Ÿƒ . This is another one of our endemic Eucalypts to Tasmania. Another one which is also listed as rare, found in only a couple of populations in the south around the Hobart region. It likes Permian mudstones on a north west facing slope. These are usually pretty drought prone areas so it has learnt to cope pretty well without a regular drink. . ๐ŸŒฑ . It is closely related to E. tenuiramis and very similar in appearance with the most notable difference being that E. risdonii holds onto its juvenile foliage morphology right into adulthood. With capsule born in the leaf axis of these leaves. The juvenile leaves are very glaucous and fused across the base (similar to E. tenuiramis) Adult leaves are lanceolate however they are rare.... except on the one I photographed at the botanical gardens!!! It also has a habit of hybridising with E. amygdalina... good olโ€™ Eucs and their hybridising... . ๐ŸŒฟ . Usually a small tree up to about 10m and can grow as a mallee form (multi trunked). I think Iโ€™m gonna put one in my backyard! However they have been known to grow a bit taller in a garden setting... we shall find out! Again, I photographed this at the botanical gardens in Hobart. Itโ€™s a marvellous specimen, down toward the water side kind of just past the oak woodland... . . #plants #flora #tasmanianflora #plantsoftasmania #wildflowers #tasmania #botany #flowersoftasmania #floraoftasmania #keeptassiewild #nature #wildflowers #australiannativeplants #planthunter #tasmania #tasmaniagram #tassielife #australia #botanical #floraoftas #islandlife #discovertasmania #amazingtasmania #eucalyptus #eucalyptusrisdonii
A wander through the nursery today discovered a particularly delicate and unperturbed specimen of #alyogynehuegelii , all that is ephemeral in a #bloom that lasts only for a day. Spring is definitely in the air! #lilachibiscus #australiannativeplants #nativeflora #straya #flora #beesonthebrain #beeseason #springwatch #nofilter #flowerphotography #dirtyfarmgirls

Patersonia sericea 'Silky Purple Flag' ~ Curra Moors track to Garie Beach, Royal National Park. [Photo: flower on 8cm disc]. The fire left the ground exposed. Woody shrubs and trees were still black but the grasses were rapidly recovering and ferns and droseas had colonised the dry, sandy soil. Purple punctuated the landscape and slender-hoverflies were feeding on the nectar of the flowers. Patersonia sericea is a common wildflower growing in heath and woodland along the east coast of Oz. It has large, vibrant-purple, 3-petalled flowers with spathes that are covered in short, silky hairs. The flowers are pretty but short-lived. Its leaves are stiff and tough, narrow-linear like grass, arosibg from an underground rhizome, which allows it to resprout after fire. . . . #australianflora #australiannativeplants #australianflowers #botany #patersonia #ecology #NSWparks #royalnationalpark
A little inspiration from the marvellous Margaret Preston, as I venture into experimenting with oils. Detail after Margaret Preston's Western Australian Gum blossom #westernaustraliangumblossom #australiannativeplants #nativeflowers #oilpainting #practacingwithoilpaints
Had so much fun filling in @laurenhullyoga 's chest with Australian natives yesterday.

Finger limes are a fruit that vary in colour, finger limes have the same tangy taste as traditional limes but their flesh is made up of many shiny pearls. Finger limes, a native rainforest fruit are now being harvested commercially. Also known as "citrus caviar", the beads pop in your mouth just like actual caviar with an explosion of citrus flavour. This unique Australian lime is an Australian Native Rainforest Lime, with a delicate and aromatic lime flavour, great in cocktails, desserts and of course its most popular application is to perfectly pair with seafood. Available at T&F All states in frozen 1kg bags ready for you to use. #fingerlimes #fingerlime Outback Pride Fresh @outbackpride @tandfallstates #australiannativeproduce #australiannativefood #bushfood #bushherbs #bushtucker #australiannativeplants #indigenousfood #nswlargestprovidore #tandfallstates #foodservice #amazingoutbackpride
The wattle is in full bloom at the park and it looks spectacular. It's probably the only thing not struggling in the drought. It lifts my mood to see these bright yellow flowers against the pure blue sky. #nofilter #wattle #australianflowers #australia #droughttolerant #drought #nativeplants #mindfulness #gratitude #australiannativeplants #parramatta
Wouldn't it be fantastic if the Cranbourne Gardens could be linked to Cranbourne township via a shuttle bus for those who do not have a car? One of the Gardens' passionate supporters, Sharon, thinks so and has put it forward for a State Government grant. You can vote for it by visiting https://pickmyproject.vic.gov.au/ and searching for projects in Cranbourne VIC 3977. Voting ends Monday 15 September 2018. #cranbournebotanicgardens #australiannativeplants #australianflora #cranbourne #royalbotanicgardensvic #pickmyproject

In a dark corner near my front door lives a native fern that was originally found growing attached to the underside of a bench in a friends production nursery. The bottle was found in hard rubbish. . . . #terrarium #fern #shadelovingplants #shadelover #australiannativeplants #indoorgarden #indoorplants #indoorjungle #urbangardening #urbanjungle #greenthumb #plantsmakepeoplehappy

Thereโ€™s such #floralbeauty abounding as you wander through the #brisbanebotanicgardensmountcoottha in August. . The #rondeletiaamoena is a versatile plant that grows in either full sun or part shade. . ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŒฟ It doesn't mind if it's grown in a large pot or the garden. It is a very tough, drought tolerant plant for any style of garden from #tropical to #formalgardens . . It doesn't like heavy frost so try planting it in a protected area if you live in a frost prone area. These plants are hardly bothered by pests or disease and they temptingly attract #butterflies . . ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿงก๐ŸŒฟ Check it out along with the equally delightful #australiannativeplants #aloes and #pelagonium currently on show . Head to our Link in Bio/Whatโ€™s Flowering to discover more information. #friendsbrisbanebotanicgardensandsherwoodarboretum #brisbanecitycouncil #subtropical #tropical #winterflowers #lovingplants #fbbgsa

CUPRESSACEAE | Athrotaxis laxifolia | Palaeoendemic | Ancient | Summit Pine | Yellow-twig Pine | Hybrid | Gymnosperm | Uniquely Tasmanian. Athrotaxis laxifolia is a hybrid between King Billy Pine, Athrotaxis selaginoides and Pencil Pine, Athrotaxis cupressoides. Itโ€™s endemic to the mountains of central, western and southern Tasmania. The foliage is morphologically intermediate between its parent species and is usually yellowish in appearance. Athrotaxis laxifolia grows 10-20m in height and usually occurs around 900-1200masl and always in the vicinity of at least one of the parent species. Due to its rarity and patchy distribution it is listed as endangered by the IUCN.
Looking spectacular at the moment is Philotheca โ€œFlower Girlโ€ from @sydneywildflowernursery . Eriostomen or wax flowers are an attractive, medium sized shrub which will grow in part shade. They have profuse sprays of delicate, pink blooms that look fabulous both in the garden and when used for cut flower arrangements. #sydneywildflowernursery #gardeningwithangus #australiannativeplants #wildflowers #australianwildflowers #pinkflowers #pink #pinkandwhite #plantanative #cutflowers #cutflowerarrangement #flowersinthegarden #floweringbush #bush #shrub #greenthumb #joyinthegarden
Banksia serrata, common name Sawleaf Banksia. This is the first new flower of the season . The tree is still loaded with huge gumnuts from last year,at least what the Black Cockatoos have left behind. They love opening the rock hard seed pods with their vice like beaks.Quite a sight to see. #banksias #seeds #flowers #flowerlover #macros #macrophotography #closeup #mygarden #gardens #gardening #gardeners #coastal #sea #salt #sand #australiannativeplants #birds #bushfood #thebush #australia #nature #mothernature
