Spectacular Flora of Hyden
November 3, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Our Dear Member Dr Eddy Wajon has been commissioned to write a colour guide book to the Flora of Hyden. Unlike his series of Colour Guides to the Spring Wildflowers of Western Australia, which covers only those plants flowering predominantly in Spring, the Wildflowers of Hyden will cover what may be found in flower at any time of the year. This has entailed visiting Hyden for 4-7 days every month for the past 15 months, photographing whatever is in flower within a 40 km radius of Hyden. As expected, spring is peak flowering time, but there is always something in flower, with the least in late autumn. Some groups of plants seem to flower in abundance in particular non-spring flowering times, eg Eucalypts, Acacias or Melaleucas.
Eddy will share the stories behind his photos of some of the spectacular, interesting, common and less common wildflowers in flower. His recent camera hunt proves that there still a lot to discover in this under-appreciated eastern section of the Wheatbelt.
The door opens at 7.30 with $3 raffles that can win you something natively interesting! Eddy’s talk will start after the Wildflowers’ “Show & Tell “at ~ 7:45 pm. See who is coming on our Facebook Event Page too.
