Common Heath Pink

Pink Common Heath (Epacris impressa)

Here are the photographs of the pink Common Heath flowers I wrote about in yesterday’s post.

So far, I have only found one plant with pink flowers, but we have quite a few Common Heath plants with white flowers.   It always seems to be a race to photograph these flowers before the Swamp Wallabies eat them.  I can only assume they must be very tasty.

Unfortunately, the Swamp Wallaby got to this plant before I could go back to take clearer photographs, so these will have to suffice for now.  I’ll keep searching for other plants with pink flowers.

Although blurry, if you compare the open flower with the photo of White Common Heath you can see they are same species.

This photograph gives a good look at the leaves.

  1. Hi Lisa, The flowers and the leaves are very beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing this with us! Have a great week ahead and take care! 🙂

    1. Thanks for letting me know, Margaret. I’m not sure if we get that one in Victoria. I don’t recall seeing anything like that on our place, but I do keep seeing new things – the more I look, the more I find. I’ll keep an eye out for it as we move through to Spring and Summer.

    1. Yes, the pink one is lovely. I think the leaves are a slightly different green than the white flowered version – although it could just be the way the light interacts with the pink flowers. Thanks Mag, Lisa

Let me know what you think!
