The Firewheel flower

Cee’s FOTD

This is a flower from a Firewheel Tree – Stenocarpus sinuatus. Not the best photo as the flower isn’t at it best. It should look like a wheel with “spokes” radiating from a central hub. I dare say birds or animals have been feeding on these flowers.

The Firewheel Tree is a rainforest tree and can grow to thirty metres in height. The flowers attract insects too, butterflies and other nectar loving insects like bees.
