Hi All
The brother and I are travelling over to WA in June - July this year via Marble Bar to Broom heading North. Just asking the question if by any chance we would be able to see any Wreath Flowers in bloom or do they flower further south and at a different time of the year. Thanks for any information about them.

Ray.

Morning RJ,
We were in WA a couple of years back and came across the Wreath Flowers in the Pindar area east of Geraldton, but I have no idea if they flower further north.
If you contact the info centre at Mullewa, they may be able to help you re flowers further north.

Hi Baz

Thanks for the info on the flowers, as I thought I might be a little to far north to view them. May have to make another trip in the future to see them in flower.

Thanks Ray

You might be a bit too far north for the Wreath Flowers. Best I've ever seen were in August, near Perenjori, which is quite a bit further south than you anticipate travelling

Hi Ray

The wreath flower (Leschenaultia macrantha) is found inland of Geraldton and throughout the more northern portions of the wheatbelt area of WA. The area bounded by Morowa, Mullawa and Yalgoo is usually the best place to see them.

Their flowering is very seasonal and can vary considerably from year to year. July - September is the usual time.

There is almost zero chance you will see a wreath flower near Broome at any time of the year, unless it’s in a florist shop.

If the wildflower season is a good one, and you enjoy seeing them in flower, then a visit to WA’s mid west is a must.

Cheers John

With the amount of rain the midwest murchison pilbara have had over the past 2 or so weeks wildflowers I suspect will be a good year

So long as we have the followup rain !

wreath flowers perenjori for sure or more specifically bowgada rd north (think that the name -umm head north out of perenjori then as you approach railway line just beofre it turn right follow that road and in a gravel pit RHS

They a species that ironically like to establish itself on distrurbed soil ie gravel pits road side verges

Will make another trip to the west and will time the trip so the viewing of the flowers will be seen.
