Cyanostegia cyanocalyx (Northern Tinsel Flower)

This spectactual large shrub has purple flowers and loves to grow in loose sand in cleared pindan country. Seen on the way to Bidyadanga, south of Broome as well as the Coconut Wells Road north of Broome, the Northern Tinsel Flower is more commonly seen on the sand dunes of the Great Sandy and Gibson Deserts.

According to ‘Broome and Beyond’ attempts in Broome to germinate the seeds of this stunning shrub have been unsuccesful.
