Hand Painted Tea Towel - Waratah on Ecru background
Hand printed Tea Towel designed by Yvonne Kiely.
Printed with Eco Friendly inks on 100% quality cotton.
I love the vibrant red and sculptural nature of this extraordinary native plant.
'Waratah', the Aboriginal name for the species, was adopted by early settlers at Port Jackson.
Waratah plants resist destruction by bushfires, a natural element of their habitat.
They regenerate from the rootstock and flowering recommences two years after a moderate fire
Telopea speciosissima, ( It’s Botanical name) was proclaimed the official floral emblem of New South Wales in 1962.
