The Fringe-lily


It is quite a while since I last saw one of these little native lilies, Beth Gott and John Conran record three different Fringe-lilies in their book ” Victorian Koori Plants” and I think that the one that I came across while I was walking in the forest is similar to the Common Fringe-lily Thysanotus tuberosus. It is the first one I have seen growing wild here in the forests of the NSW far south coast but that maybe that is because I am not observant enough. I was lucky to be carrying my phone so I was able to take a photo to record my experience. I am not sure what the white patch behind the flower in the photo was, I ought to have noticed if it was rubbish but maybe I was so focused on the flower that I saw nothing else.
