'Purple Flag' seeds

Patersonia occidentalis

  • Perennial to 60cm
  • Australian Native Wildflower

Perennial growing to 60cm. Australian native plant with strappy grass-like foliage and striking purple triangular three-petalled flowers held on long stems above foliage. This hardy plant flowers from spring through summer and is tolerant of coastal locations, drought and poor soil conditions. Loves dry warm climates, full sun and sandy soils. Great for rockeries and attracting beneficial insects. Also known as "Koma" or "Komma" or "Native Iris". 

Note: Seeds of many native plants are dormant and will not germinate until ideal environmental conditions are met. Follow instructions for pre-treatment and sowing, and be patient; some wild harvested seeds can take much longer to germinate than expected.
