Wildflowers

All over the cape!

As a result of its geographic isolation there are some species of wildflowers, plants and animals that are endemic to the Cape Range, including the red centred variety of Sturt’s desert pea. Surveys have recorded over 630 species of flowering plants on the peninsula of Cape Range National Park. This is a surprisingly high number for an arid limestone area.

Bordering the Ningaloo Reef the Cape Range National Park has an even greater concentration of wildflower varieties, some including the Ashburton peas, hairy pepperflowers, Yardie Creek morning glory, daisies, wattle, native tomatoes, hibbertia, native foxgloves, Sturt’s desert pea, rattlebrush, green birdflower, toucan flower.
