English: cone flowers

Conostylis is a genus of perennial herbs in the family Haemodoraceae commonly known as cone flowers, endemic to the south west of Western Australia. They have leathery, strap-like leaves which arise from the base of the plant, sometimes from underground rhizomes. Flowers which usually occur in clusters (sometimes singly) on stalks which emerge from the bases of the leaves.[3] Individual flowers have a short stalk with and six tepals which are either cream, yellow, orange or purple. The tepals join to form a short tube at the base with six similar stamens attached at the top of the tube.[4]
