Rock Thryptomene (Thryptomene saxicola) is a small shrub endemic to the Stirling and Eyre districts of Western Australia. It blooms most prolifically in spring, but has flowers for most of the year, which is why it is the most common of all the Thryptomene species to be used in cut flower arrangements.
Rock Thryptomene flowers are very small and either white or pink in colour. The flowers grow on the lateral branches from the stem, and although they are small, there are usually many of them, giving a flush of colour to the branches. The foliage itself, like other plants in the Myrtaceae family, contains aromatic oils and is in itself a lovely addition to cut flower arrangements.
