Guichenotia macrantha

 

Description: Gee, I can't pronounce this one, but it sure has pretty pink upside down flowers! This is a dense shrub to about 3' and has narrow, pale green leaves and pink to purple bell shaped flowers. Must have good drainage, withstands dry periods and some frost with protection.  One of six endemic Western Australia species, this one has the largest flowers (2.5 cm) and is probably the best of the species.  It is an excellent rockery plant.
