Blue Pincushion
(Brunonia australis)

This tufted perennial herb is striking with its cornflower-blue flower heads on leafless unbranched stalks growing between 10-35 cm high. The leaves are mainly basal and oblanceolate.

The common name of Blue Pincushion makes reference to the protruding pin-like styles that stick up above the blue petals.

They are found growing on sandplains and dunes and although widespread, they are not very common. The following images are from Chambers Pillar Historical Reserve.
