Pink Flannel Flower (Actinotus forsythii)

Pink Flannel Flowers are straggling small plants that flower about 1 year after a bush fire.

The flowers are really a cluster of tiny deep pink flowers surrounded by soft, almost furry, light pink bracts.

Can be found at altitude from the Blue Mountains to just into Victoria growing in heath and open forest.

Pink Flannel Flowers are rarely seen despite their distribution. They only seem to flower in the year after a fire and then only once. I've only seen Pink Flannel Flowers a few times.
