The Wreath Flower is quite rare, only growing in certain parts of Western Australia.

There are at least 12,000 plant species living across the state of Western Australia! This unusual, low growing plant, Lechenaultia macrantha, - or wreath flower - is not found anywhere else in the world.  The large yellow, pink and red flowers appear at the ends of the branches which grow out in a ring of up to a metre in diameter. It's flowering period is around August to November.

Wreath Flower Leschenaultia @_Morowa Western Australia.The wreath flowers are only 5cm tall at most but up to 50cm in diameter. Mostly they lay as individual rings but every now and then they interlocked to form a pretty chain against the ochre sand. They are not endangered but are unique to small areas of the West Australian wheatbelt and Geraldton sandplains.
