Boronia coerulescens ssp coerulescens aka Blue Boronia
Kingdom: Plantae
Phylum: Angiosperms
Class: Eudicots
Subclass: Rosids
Order: Sapindales
Family: Rutaceae
Monarto Conservation Park – August 28th, 2014 – warm, dry conditions

I was taken aback by these small flowers.  They had a crispness that almost made them look artificial – They are part of a large family and are widely cultivated. I haven’t seen too many species in the Bush though – Very beautiful.
