Massed Flowering in Central Australia
Wildflower season in Australia is
often a spectacular affair. Whilst some regions, such as along Australia’s
coastlines, can almost assure an annual display of wildflowers, much of
Australia’s arid region rely on seasonal rain.
Nowhere is the idea and visual
spectacle of wildflowers more astonishing than in the desert region. A region
where good seasonal rainfall can transform the outback in a mass of colour,
created by thousands of flowering plants. These ephemeral plants are keyed to
respond quick to any good rainfall, by growing, flowering and producing seeds.
Together with many shrubs and trees, it is a spectacle worth seeing.
flowering of this nature usually lasts only a couple of months at the most,
occurring mainly in winter in the northern parts or in spring for the southern
parts of Australia.
