Mountain Devil

Lambertia formosa, or Honey Flower, is bush tucker. I tasted its sweet refreshing nectar at the weekend on a big hike along the Grand Canyon in the Blue Mountains. Very lovely.

It is pollinated by a variety of small birds, the type called here honey eaters. Its other name, Mountain Devil, is because of the horns on the seed head, which aren’t currently in season.
