|Pine-leaved Geebung (Persoonia pinifolia)|
grows well in this park. It can get to 4m high,
and looks a bit like a woolly-bush.
|Here's a Pine-leaved Geebung with a|
late burst of flowers. The flowers are followed
by edible purplish grape-sized fruit.
|These ferns were growing high on a rocky outcrop, just|
holding on in cracks in the rock.
|It's been a great year for Banksias round Sydney and |
Wollongong. Here's a Hairpin Banksia (Banksia spinulosa) putting
on a good show.
|These Grass Trees (Xanthorrhoea sp) were perfectly|
happy growing by the 10B fire trail, among Red
Bloodwoods (Corymbia gummicera) and Saw-tooth Banksias (Banksia serrata).
|This little heathy plant is Woollsia pungens,|
or Snow Wreath. It can flower all year round.
|The Scribbly Gums (probably E. racemosa in this case) are one |
of the delights of the Dharawal. Here's a group of young
trees growing we saw alongside the fire trail.
|Last, and also least in size terms, here are|
the leaves of a few Helmet Orchids (Corybas)
growing happily among dense leaf litter.
(Correction: the orchids are probably Gnat orchids, in the genus Acianthus.)
