Anarthria scabra   No English name Endemic

Anarthria scabra whole Anarthria scabra

This was one of the first plants I saw when new to the Australian flora. As it was quite colourful I made the mistake of assuming that it might be a member of one of the more exotic families like Proteaceae. The illustration in my guide shows the female flowers but these colourful flower parts are male. This is a Southern Rush which has as yet no common name.

Anarthria scabra is found around the far south western coastal plains from just north of Margaret River to Esperance but not very far inland. Thanks to Richard Clark for correcting the species name.
