A flannel flower proudly showing it’s beautiful fuzzy centrepiece in Oatley Park, Sydney, Australia.

Actinotus helianthi, known as the flannel flower, is a common species of flowering plant native to the bushland around Sydney, Australia.

Despite its appearance, it is not a member of the daisy family but rather a species of the Apiaceae (formerly Mackinlayaceae) family, the same family as the carrot. Its generic name, meaning “furnished with rays”, is derived from the Greek stem aktin-/ακτιν- “ray” or “spoke of a wheel” or “sunbeam”, while its specific epithet is derived from its resemblance to the genus Helianthus.

Not taken with the Canon camera.
