Botany picture #194 Wahlenbergia gloriosa

On the weekend we made a little trip to Mount Franklin Road in the Brindabella Mountains, and for the first time I saw the 'royal bluebell' Wahlenbergia gloriosa (Campanulaceae) in flower. It is the floral emblem of the Australian Capital Territory, and it has been chosen as the logo of the upcoming Australasian Systematic Botany Society conference that my institution is hosting.
