This hibiscus is native to a small area of rocky sandstone country near Tolmer Falls in Litchfield National Park. It was named Hibiscus petherickii in honour of my wife's grandfather, Edward Raymond Petherick, now an active 91 years old, an amateur botanist and photographer, and long-time pioneer in the area.

This is what we call white apple, Syzygium eucalyptoides subsp. bleeseri, (though quite unrelated to real apples). In the Northern Territory's Top End these flowers will in about 2 months become delicious native fruits, high in vitamin C, related to the lilli pilli.

Gardenia megasperma in Litchfield National Park, Northern Territory of Australia. It's a shame we don't yet have an internet of smells, as this flower smells gorgeous, not unlike the Gardenias people grow in their gardens.

Native ginger, Curcuma australasica, has sprung up at Nunjurr (Wangi Falls) in Litchfield National Park after 6 months of dormancy as underground tubers. Wet season rains that trigger its activity started only 5 days ago!

Melastoma polyanthum, closely related to the osbeckia I posted a couple of weeks ago but has much larger flowers and leaves. It's found in similar habitats too: permanent freshwater springs and creeks in the Top End's sandstone country.
