Plants of the Month - September

Dendrobium speciosum (Sydney Rock Orchid)

Dendrobium speciosum (=Thelychiton speciosus)

The arching flower sprays on the Sydney Rock Orchid up to 45 cm long are so showy, it is easy to overlook the beauty of the individual flowers which can range in colour from white to cream to yellow. The flowers have a sweet perfume in the full heat of the day. Flowering September-October. Dendrobium is Greek for tree-living referring to its epiphytic habit of growing on rock ledges.

Actinotus minor (Lesser Flannel Flower)

Actinotus minor

At first glance, the close-up photo of Actinotus minor looks like the more common flannel flower Actinotus helianthi. But the A. minor starry flowers are tiny - only one centimetre in diameter. The small shrub to 40 cm has few small leaves on wiry stems and is found in open heathland. Photo www.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au
