Colourful flowering shrubs and wildflowers are a blaze of glory for many months of the year. Probably the most luxurious displays are the Everlastings, for their brief flowering period, and the various types of yellow and pink Verticordia, with especially brilliant Dampiera species being found in the area. Wattles, Bottlebrush and various types of Cassia line many roads in the spring time.
The small red Darwinia Rosea, which is plentiful in the area, and is commonly called the "Koorda Rose" is now being featured in many town gardens. Probably another fifty to sixty species can readily be found during their flowering periods, most particularly between July and October.
