Gymea Lily Life Cycle Photography

Stock Stock Images By Jeremy Wood

Doryanthes excelsa, known as Gymea Lily, is a flowering plant indigenous to the coastal areas of New South Wales near Sydney. The plant has sword-like leaves more than a meter long. It flowers in spring and summer, sending up a flower spike up to 6 m high, which at its apex bears a large cluster of bright red flowers, each 10 cm across. This series, showing a whole flower head from unopened, through the opening of all flowers; then dying and drying, took six weeks.
