Fringed Violet

This is the pretty Fringed Violet or Fringed Lily. It was photographed whilst we were on the most beautiful of bushwalks on Victoria's glorious Mount Buffalo.

'The Fringed Lily grows in the form of a rush-like clump. In flower it has many heads, each bearing a long-lasting succession of feathery-edged flowers. Thysanotus multiflorus is a member of the lily family' (Michael Morcombe, Wildflowers of Australia, 1974)
