Flannel flowers are now flowering in my garden and I know are out throughout New South Wales. These soft daisy-like flowers have petals that are quite thick and feel like a flannel cloth. The centres are raised like a soft button. They were the Centenary of federation emblem for NSW in 2001. They have a soft grey-green foilage with the flowers raising above on taller waving stems
Those flannel flowers looks so dainty and lovely.
Hello quickthinker, the flannel flowers are not really that small but just have a lovely ‘soft’ quality as they sway on their longer stalks in the breeze. They are amongst my (many!) favourite Australian wildflowers…along with waratahs, banksias etc etc etc……..
