Stages of a waratah coming to bloom

Waratahs are the most magnificent complicated flower. They thrive in Roberston. 
The flowers start from a tight bud like a lotus that forms months before opening.
As they open they turn from green to pale pink and eventually to red.

When finished a new branch springs from the centre growing at least 50cm before forming a new flower next year.
