Eriostemon or Eastern Waxflower
During the late 1800s and early 1900s it was common practice for Newspapers to run Poetry competitions with the topic usually the Australian Bush & Wildflowers. People loved to write poems about wildflowers and in particular children eagerly wrote about their favourite wildflowers often imagining them the home of fairies and magic. In 1927 a Poem was published written by Marie Dodds of New Lambton titled Eriostemon of which part read:
Fair blossom children of the wild, A'bloom beside a sun washed sea.
Your pearly buds again unfold,
To toss in wild profusion free
Beneath the ti-tree's dusky crown,
On hill and sanded plain,
The waxen Eriostemon,
Is with us once again.
Our Posy this week contains the beautiful starry shaped little flowers of Eriostemon and can be found in our flower shop at https://www.nativebunch.com.au or see our photo below of beautiful Eriostemon.
