Desert Flora 7, 8

Interesting, but very formal arrangements of the Sturt Desert Pea.

Here is a link to some photos of the real thing.

Unfortunately, they are not the easiest plants to grow in the home garden … I put in some seeds and have a little patch smothered in easy to identify weeds … no desert peas! Before I try again I am going to find some pre-emergence spray so that I will be able to see any strange plants coming up.

    Thank you for the link, Judy! I have never seen this cool looking plant! 🙂


    • Laura,

      I have seen way more photos than the plant in real life, but Mum had some growing in the backyard when I was growing up. Not the easiest plant to grow in a garden … grows much better in desert regions.

    I really like the second design. This is a fascinating plant. I enjoyed reading up about it after seeing your previous quilt designs with this plant as a basis.
