Waratah

The Waratah which is the name given it by the local Aborigines has the scientific name Telopea speciosissima. "Telopea" from the Greek means "seen from afar" and "speciosissima" from Latin means handsome. Both are appropriate names. It grows wild along the eastern seaboard of New South Wales, Australia in sandy well drained soil.

Waratah

One of Australia's unique flora are the Waratahs. Belonging to the genus Telopea, family Proteaceae, these flowers have become increasingly popular as not only floral arrangements, but also as garden plantings. Well known as crimson red in colour, they have also appeared in the wild in other colours from pink to yellow and white. With modern cultivation, these variations have been selected and bred to be made available for our gardens.

How to grow waratahs

Arguably the most-loved native flower, waratahs enjoy a sunny spot with morning sun under gum trees, as they are found in nature. Give them what they need and waratahs will surprise you with their robustness, longevity and size, growing to a towering four metres high and three metres wide.

The Queen of all our Australian natives- the Waratah (Telopea speciosissima ) She makes no apology for being big, bold and brassy and neither will I in my painting of this beauty. This Australian native art print has luscious green and blue-tinged leaves that set up a great contrast to the bright and bold red flowers.
