Flowers in Australia: 14

Seen on the eastern coastal path nr Bronte Beach

The flowers appear to start off deep pink and fade to white as they get older. They have quite a ‘furry’ texture and a slight scent. Any ideas?

  1. Sorry. Not like anything I’ve seen here. It sounds as if you’re exploring the shoreline thoroughly. How’s the heat? We’re contemplating river-immersion shortly.

      Well they obviously thrive by the coast! Hot again here, was going to go over to the city side and out to the eastern suburbs again, but decided that it would be too much. Just going to potter and enjoy the warmth from inside, maybe wander to the ocean later for a while (and an iced coffee). No point killing myself. I have enjoyed my outings so far and if I get washing done and packed today I may pop into Manly tomorrow and possibly climb up to the North Heads. Enjoy your dip in the river 🙂

    No idea but I love the ‘furry’ description. Very pretty pink petals and I am left imagining what they feel like. 🙂

      They are very pretty, but I still have no idea what they are.

    I also have no idea Jude, looks a bit like a hibiscus crossed with a camellia and a touch of dog rose!!!! I’m thinking it may be an import…

      I wonder what it is? It’s rather beautiful.

  4. They are beautiful. With so many buds, they must be stunning in full bloom.
