2) Cyanella hyacinthoides
3) Bloomeria crocea
4) Brodiaea elegans
5) Lilium 'Tiger Babies'

Welcome Fermi.  Continental drift must be accelerating ;) ;D but your plants are as good as ever. 8)
Never again trust "cut and paste"! :o
Thanks, Maggi,

Another roadside stop on the way home from Bendigo in the Kim Bolton State Forest.
1) botanising close to the road
2) Xerochrysum (Helichrysum) viscosum - the Sticky Everlasting - is the main colour this year
3) Xerochrysum viscosum & Lobelia gibbosa
4 & 5) a taller inhabitant is Grevillea alpina - the Mountain Grevillea - rather misnamed in this environment!

I think this is the first time that I've seen Lobelia gibbosa in the wild

Fermi, nice to see these impressive native plants, all are totally unknown to me.
Many thanks for your good work.

All these natives are (almost) unknown to us, thanks for sharing.
