Tasmanian Waratah

Tasmanian Waratah
The Tasmanian waratah Telopea truncata is one of the five members of the Telopea genus, each endemic to different regions of Australia, and a member of the Proteaceae family. The plant was first described botanically by the French botanist Jacques Labillardière in 1805. These waratahs grow as small trees: see the inset note at top right. This one was flowering alongside the road in western Tasmania as we drove past (and very promptly stopped for photos).

o0o I have never seen anything quite like these before,
the colour is so lovely and as I look at them I almost
expect them to move like sea anenomies do ... not
sure I have spelt that correctly (doing it from memory)
but from your note at the side, it is quite large, well taken
indeed ... I would have wanted to have stopped and
looked more closely also oOo

The flower is unique and amazing to me.. yes, Protea is the family it would be in...still the foliage and the habit of the plant scream "wild rhododendron".
