Australia Wildflowers / Australian Flora
There is no mistaking the Poached Egg Daisy (Polycalymma stuartii), often seen during spring for those driving through Australia's outback region. Even more spectacular is seeing them on mass in full bloom, often seen lining the side of dirt tracks. For those driving in Owen Springs Reserve in the Northern Territory during spring, they provide spectacular flora display along with the many other wild flowers.

This species is quite common on sand plains and dune flanks, appearing after good rain. They also occur along alluvial sandy soils and along dry watercourses. The flower heads are on long stems, with hairy grey-green leaves near the base of the plant.

The Poached Egg Daisy can be seen throughout the arid outback regions, from Central Australia in the NT, across the Queensland and Victoria border, into New South Wales and South Australia. Seen in a number of arid zone botanic gardens, visitors to Alice Spring can see them in spring at the Olive Pink Botanic Garden and the Alice Springs Desert Park.
