The protected Flannel Flower is commonly found growing wild in coastal heath, scrub and dry forest Country. For Aboriginal people, all flowers and plants have a meaning and these indicate their usage under Lore. The Flannel Flower symbolises close relationships, intimacy and healing. It is adaptable and resilient in order for it to survive on Country and is the national symbol used for Aboriginal mental health awareness.
