Hakea Laurina, one of many Hakeas. A prolific flowering tree, and a beauty to behold, one the glories of the Australian bush.

  2. Like the blooms and the leaves, too…the reddish tint. We don’t have
    anything like it here, that’s for sure!

  3. It is really beautiful! And those leaves too. Is it fragrant?

  4. We have a similar plant in the desert called the Fairy Duster (Calliandra eriophylla). Well the flower is similar. It is the plant to love in the desert and not in a home landscape. I love the red stems of the Hakeas and the fact that it looks thornless. Nice…

    • Tis indeed thornless, this one is commonly known as the pin cushion Hakea, the one you mentioned, I just had to go and have a look- beautiful, and yes, some similarities. Thanks for that.
