Geraldton Wax (Chamaelaucium uncinatum) is a flowering plant endemic to Western Australia. It is an erect shrub 0.5-4.0m high, bearing white or pink flowers from June to November.

Prickly Moses wattle (Acacia pulchella) is a shrub endemic to Western Australia, and is one of the most common shrubs of the bushland around Perth and the Darling Range. Prickly Moses is one of only a small number of Acacia species to have true leaves, rather than phyllodes. It has feathery, bipinnate leaves with leaflets up to 5 mm long. At the base of each leaf is one or two spines. The flower heads are bright yellow and spherical, with a diameter of up to 1 cm. It flowers in late winter and early spring.

Pink and White Everlasting (Rhodanthe chlorocephala subspecies rosea) is a native Australian daisy widely grown due to its attractive flowers and foliage. It grows naturally in the south of Western Australia extending into South Australia. The everlastings are an annual herb growing from 20-60cm high, with a large single flowering head at the tip of each stem. The colour of the flower varies from deep pink (almost red) through pale pink to pure white, with a yellow or black centre. It generally flowers from August to November in the wild but with sufficient water and warmth it will flower at other times.

Red and Green Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos manglesii), also known as Mangles kangaroo paw, is a plant species endemic to Western Australia, and is the state floral emblem. The flower has become symbolic of the region. The display between August and November is remarkable for the high standing flowers occurring in urban and coastal regions. The species is not threatened, but is protected under state legislation. A license is required for collection from the wild. It is desirable as a cut flower, possessing an unusual form and striking colours that last well.

Silver Princess (Eucalyptus caesia), also known as Caesia or Gungurru, is a mallee of the Eucalyptus genus. It is endemic to the central Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, where it is found on a small number of granite outcrops. The name "silver" refers to the white powder that covers the branches, flower buds and fruit. "Gungurru" comes from the name used by the indigenous Noongar people. Silver Princess grows to 6-9m tall. Branches tend to flail or weep on the ground. Trees have large red-pink or white flowers. They are widely grown as ornamental native plants, but have become rare in the wild.
