Artist's Description

I have been searching for the elusive flannel flower for many months. The last time I saw one of these flowers in the wild was when I was a child so when I finally came across some when searching the Blue Mountains bushland I was delighted. These are my all time favourite flowers.

The Sydney Flannel Flower (Actinotus helianthi) is an Australian wildflower usually found in open forest and woodland, usually on sand or sandstone on the coast and mountains of New South Wales and southern Queensland.

Flannel flower is a herbaceous or shrubby plant reaching almost a metre in height in good conditions but is often much smaller. The leaves are deeply lobed, grey and velvety in nature, giving rise to the common name. The flowers are small and occur in clusters surrounded by velvety, “petal-like” bracts. The overall appearance of each head of flowers is similar to a daisy.
