Weed maybe


I have noticed these purple flowers growing beside the road near Springwood so stopped for a closer look. They appear to be spreading along the road, but nowhere near as fast as the Calliopsis I showed yesterday. I don't know whether this is a native plant. So I don't know whether to call it a weed or not.

  1. Hmmm .... what is a weed? It's really just a plant out of place. These are lovely.

  2. So no luck finding out what it is?
    All I could find that is very similar is the Australian native wild pea Hovea linearis.
