Thank you to KMS who left a comment on my Cranberry Heath post, including a link to the VicVeg website. What a fantastic breakthrough. This wonderful website allows me to search by flower colour, location within Victoria, and type of plant (herb, tree, shrub etc) meaning, I have finally been able to put names to the remaining October wildflowers.
Here they are:
Blue Stars Chamaescilla corymbosa var. corymbosa
I only found one or two examples of this beautiful flower.
Yellow StarHypoxis vaginata
Another star,, but very different plant to the Blue Stars. Along the front fence, in the grassy area, this plant was fairly common. The VicVeg website confirms that it is not threatened.
Onion Grass Romulea rosea
What I thought to be a pretty native flower has turned out to be a weed – onion grass. Needless to say, this was reasonably plentiful in the grassy area along the front fence.
Later this week, I will post Part 1 of the November Wildflowers series.
