Artist's Description

One of the most spectacular signs of the arrival of Spring is without a doubt the new life appearing everywhere. This image was taken in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia. The image portays a bud of the NSW Waratah (Telopea speciosissima) which is a large, long-lived shrub or tree that generally grows to about 3 m tall. It may reach 5 m in the absence of the fires – however, fires are common in its natural habitat. After a fire a waratah can regenerate from a ‘lignotuber’ – a woody swelling of its stem that lies partly or wholly under the ground.
