Lechenaultia biloba

The genus Lechenaultia  belongs to the Plant Family Goodeniaceae, Order Asterales. Some species are native to Australia. A small shrub plant species, named Lechenaultia biloba, was observed at the King Part and Botanic Garden in Perth.  The plant bears beautiful blue flowers, and hence commonly known as Blue Leschenaultia. The petals are bi lobed at the distal end.    Its blue flowers impose their presence. It is easily visible even when planted in areas crowded with other flowering plants.
