Botany picture #65: Epacris impressa

Epacris impressa (Ericaceae), Australian National Botanic Garden, 2013. Here in Australia every state has an official state flower, and this is the one of Victoria. Not sure if German states have any; if so, it is at least not common knowledge. I guess if Germany as a whole has a national plant it is the oak. Here in Australia the national floral emblem is a wattle (Acacia, Fabaceae).
