Flora Spotting with Jules

Spring in Kalimna Park is the time when many small herbaceous plants emerge. Some are small and delicate and easy to miss, or you notice them but are not sure what they are.

One plant that is not easy to miss is Tetratheca ciliata, commonly known as Pink Bells (pictured).

It is a small, slender shrub with profuse and showy dark pink to rosy purple flowers, hence its common name of Pink Bells. It is often found entwined with other plants. 

If you are wandering around Kalimna at the moment, this one is small but impossible to miss with its showy flowers.
