Waratah - by Nutex
Waratahs are spectacular spring-flowering Australian native shrubs. Indeed, the large flowers are so striking, the New South Wales waratah is the state's floral emblem.
The New South Wales waratah (Telopea speciosissima) is one of five species of waratah found along the east coast of Australia and the one that has been most highly developed for gardens.
These plants are not just beautiful to see in flower in bushland. With their large red (or sometimes pink, yellow or white) flowers, they are highly desirable as cut flowers and as garden plants.
The flowers have a large central cluster of curved flowers surrounded by colourful bracts that resemble petals. The flowers are held on shrubs with long, serrated, leathery, dark-green leaves.
