Good afternoon all. I've searched Denise Greig's Wildflowers of Outback Australia, checked out Stephen's 2011 blog on Simpson flowers and checked the EO flowers data base. (Val can we have sub headings such as say white flowers/Simpson Desert etc)
Below are a couple of photos of the flower in question taken on the 16th July on the French Line about 10km west of Colson Junction.



Thanks

Duncan,

Going on photos in Rhondda Alexander's "Plants of the Channel Country", that is Wild Stock or Native Stock(Blennodia pterosperma)

I'll go along with that. Its in the Family Brassicaceae (Cabbage Family), and quite common in the desert after decent rain.

Bob & Val thanks for the info. Finding plant names can be a challenge at times.

I've got a number of photos Val that one of these days I'll load into the wildflowers data base for you to play with.

Cheers

Hi Duncan,
Not quite sure what you mean by sub headings, but in any case David has done all the writing of the code to set the wildflowers DB up. I think that in time he intends that it will be searchable by the IBRA areas on the map. Currently you can put any word/words into the search in the wildflowers section - in this case white or Simpson and see what comes up - although currently there are no members of this family entered so you would draw a blank on getting an ID.

I hope you will add these good pics in there.

Cheers,

Val.

BTW I am delighted to hear though that you and maybe others are using the wildflowers section to help identify plants that you have come across.

I will talk to David about having the capacity to post photos there of unknown wildflowers and asking for help in identifying them - we have discussed having such a facility but its implementation has slipped a bit. I know David has been pretty busy recently.

Cheers,

Val
