Finding Wildflowers in WA

Western Australia with its sandy soils may seem an unlikely place for wildflowers to prosper, however, this state is world renowned for being the Wildflower State. Around 12,000 wildflower species have been found throughout WA, with the south-western corner of the state notable for having more species of flowering plants than almost anywhere else in the world.

This article gives you an extensive list of many various species of wildflowers and the regions where they are most prolific. The wildflower season lasts for five months and flowers may begin to bloom from July in the warmer parts of the state through to November in the south. What a better time to start looking.
