ALTHOUGH the flora of Western Australia strongly attracted early botanists and collectors, it was virtually neglected by settlers faced with a century or more of hard pioneering.
Only recently has enthusiasm for our remarkable flora developed within the State and, with the formation of sponsoring societies and the establishment of the Kings Park Botanic Gardens, native species have become popular in home and civic gardens.
