Plants at Cape LeGrand National Park

plant

The southern coast receives a fair amount of water during the wet season and supports a different set of plant communities. At Cape LeGrand National Park the most common plant communities are various "heaths" which develop either over the bare rocks or over sand/gravel outwash plains. All of these plants have adapted to an environment low in nutrient minerals. Above is scarlet honeymyrtle (Melaleuca fulgens); to the right is prickly dryandra (Dryandra falcata).
