This was one of many plants growing straight out of the gravelly sand of this excellent bush reserve. At first I didn't notice the flowers as they merged into the background, but closer examination of the shrub revealed these fairly large flowers which look like a large type of Myrtle.

Not really a conicidence as Conothamnus is a genus of four Western Australian species of the Myrtaceae family.

It is found near the coast in a region about 30 miles north of Perth and on the south coast not far from Albany.
