Australia Wildflowers / Australian Flora
The Commonwealth of Australia, together with our state and territories have their own floral emblem. One of flowering plants often associated with Australia is the 'wattle'. The largest genus of flowering plants, belonging to the species Acacia, there are said to be some 1,380 species in the world, with 985 species found in Australia.

Australia's national floral emblem is of course the 'golden wattle' from the species A. pycnantha (Binomial name Acacia pycnantha Benth). Used in many designs and many awards in our honours system - the single wattle flower is the emblem of the 'Order of Australia'.
