The southwest area of Western Australia, including the Perth Region, is renowned for its amazing richness and diversity of flora, with around 9000 plant species, most of which are unique to W.A. The great profusion of wildflowers during the spring months in particular offers something very special and unique to this region and on its own is a great incentive to get out bushwalking! Although wildflowers are at their peak from August to October, a large number of plants, such as the Verticordias (feather flowers) and many of the Eucalypt and Banksia trees, and orchids, also flower outside the peak spring period.
