We recently visited Kangaroo Island (part of South Australia) for 5 days/4 nights and these are some of the plants we came across while there.
A lot of the photos are not labeled as I'm not sure of what the plant is, or whether it was native or feral. Not all the plants were photographed on the Friday, I have allowed myself a little bit of 'floristic' licence.
|Correa alba - White Correa.|
This was photographed at Victor Harbour on the mainland.
|A local native grass and a lavender share a garden bed at Cape Willoughby Lighhouse.|
|Euphorbia paralias - Sea Spurge (feral)|
These were growing on the coastal sand dunes.
|The Old Mulberry Tree, which was sent from England and planted by the South Australian Company in 1836.|
This was at the Reeves Point historic site, Kingscote.
|Both these plants were growing on coastal rocky banks, could be 'salt bushes'.|
|I would say this is a native, but have no idea what it is. (not sure)|
Growing at Seal Bay.
|Callistemon / Melaleuca sp. growing at Seal Bay. (not sure)|
(Melaleuca acuminata - Mallee Honey Myrtle ???)

|No idea what this native plant is at Cape du Couedic.|

(Melaleuca gibbosa - Slender Honey Myrtle???) (not sure)
|This Banksia were growing along side the Playford Highway on the northern border of Flinders Chase National Park.|
( Banksia marginata - Silver Banksia ???) (not sure)
|This could be Banksia ornata - Desert Banksia, growing close to the above Banksia.|

|Fire or drought?|
