Plant list - Red flowers

Tasmania hasn't got all that many red-flowered plants. The flowers of female Allocasuarinas are smallish, but in many of the species can be beautiful. While the Common Heath is often pink, we stock a deep red form, and the flowers of the Hairy Rainforest Heath are a deep pink that borders on red. The star is the Tasmanian Waratah, which lights up higher regions of the Tasmanian bush in spring.
