- Tuart Car Park - Bold Park, Floreat
Not the type you have with meat and three veg, but one of the biggest families of Australian native plants. With 19,000 species peas are a heavyweight in the plant world. Like the garden variety, they also have a pod with seeds but this wild bunch can pack a toxic punch.
Winter is the perfect time to see an array of spectacular specimens in bloom throughout Bold Park from the crimson Cockies Tongue to the rambling Native Wisteria. Behind their spectacular floral displays these plants conceal a seedy side, doing deals and paying bribes to secure their place in the bush.
Find out more about this intriguing family of plants by joining the volunteer guides on an informative morning walk through Bold Park.
