Star-like Asteridea | Asteridea asteroides
A cluster of snowflake-like flowers rest on a wreath of leaves, this is the Star-like Asteridea. These starry wonders bloom especially bright against the charred earth after a bushfire. Their radiating petals make the perfect frame for the celestial skyskape of stars that nestle together in the the centre of the flower head.
Mostly around Esperance, also found near Geraldton but not in the wetter southern corner of WA. Primarily Noongar Country; Nhanta and Amangu countries and Wudjari in the south.
August – November, Djilba – Kambarang (Noongar)
