Hakea lehmaniana by LouJay

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Tipped off by a friend, we made a visit to a small local flora reserve – Pingeculling reserve. There there is a variety of heath and gravel/laterite flora, and a very substantial population of this hakea. Blue! Anyone with familiarity with the genus Hakea, would know that they range from cream and soft yellow, through to pinks, coral and rich red. Blue is very odd – and my first time seeing and photographing these unusually coloured beauties. And believe me, they are not cuddly….Ouch!

I like to play. I find joy in small things and moments where the edge between conscious looking and subconscious seeing becomes soft enough for me to be there for a moment.

    Gorgeous, please add to Protaceae Family Group

  • Poor loves – not as showy as some other Hakea species…but the blue is very unusual, and a whole thicket is fabulous! I have added to Proteaceae group. Cheers!
