Australia plants photos and names | What plants grow in Australia

The plant world of Australia began to form several million years ago and for a significant time evolved in complete isolation from plants from other continents. This led to its specific development vector, which, in the end, led to a large number of endemic species. There are so many endemicians here that the mainland, together with the islands, is called the “Australian Floristic Kingdom”.

The study of the Australian flora began James Cook back in the 18th century. However, a detailed description of the local world of plants was compiled only at the beginning of the 20th century. Consider the most noticeable views.

Perhaps the most extravagant Australian plant is a stinging tree. Its leaves and branches are literally saturated with strong poison, causing irritation, inflammation and tumor on the skin. The action lasts up to several months. There is a known case of human contact with a tree, which led to death. From stinging trees in Australia, homemade cats and dogs regularly die. Interestingly, some marsupial animals safely eat the fruits of this tree.

Another unusual tree is baobab. He has a very thick barrel (about eight meters in girth) and is able to live for more than a thousand years. The exact age of Baobab is very difficult to determine, since it does not have the usual trees of annual rings on the cut of the barrel.

Also, the Australian continent is rich in various interesting herbs. For example, various types of fiber are widely represented here-a predator flower that fits into the inflorescence of insects. It grows throughout the continent and has about 300 species. Unlike similar plants on other continents, the Australian Rivyanka has bright inflorescences, pink, blue or yellow.
