HOWATHARRA HILL RESERVE: FLOWER COLOURS CODED
The plant names in the Spreadsheet and the Howatharra Plant Species List are arranged alphabetically by family, genus, and species. A capital "P" in the photos-column (Col.2) of the Spreadsheet, indicates that species is represented by one or more color images in the Botanical Photo Gallery. (ALL other spp., if showing a blank space in Col.2, still remain to be photographed.) The images in the Photo Gallery can be browsed alphabetically by family, genus and species. The photos in the Gallery can also be accessed by a click on the family name or the first letter of the family name.

SEE ALSO the top of p.12 in the 1977 Howatharra Reserve booklet (pdf 2.8M).
INTERPRETATION OF THE ABBREVIATIONS IN COLUMN 12 OF THE SPREADSHEETS


COLOURS (mostly capitals):

B = BLUE, Bk = BLACK, Br = BROWN
C = CREAM (faintly yellow-tinged white or "off-white"); see also W
G = GREEN
L = LAVENDER or MAUVE (pale pinkish-violet)
Or = ORANGE, Or-Pk = "salmon" (pinkish-orange)
Pk = PINK
Pr = PURPLE (darker and more intense than violet)
R = RED
RV = MAGENTA (reddish-violet)
V = VIOLET (± pale purple)
W = WHITE ("pure" or intense, like snow); see also C
Y = YELLOW
MODIFIERS (lower case, and precedes the colour):

d = colour is dull or "muddy"
p = colour is pale or pastel -- [pale orange would be written "pOr"]
v = colour is vivid, rich or intense

A hyphen (-) between 2 colours implies a colour-blend or combination, such as "salmon-pink" (Or-Pk), yellow-orange (Y-Or), greenish- or bluish-white (B-W), etc., etc., etc..

A plus-sign(+) between 2 colours implies that distinct markings (maculation) can be seen on some or all of the petals, such as brown marks (Br) on a yellow (Y) background, for example, as in the pea, Cristonia stenophylla (formerly Bossiaea biloba). The markings may be either on the upper or underside of the petal (most often the former), and it is the background or dominant ground colour that will be given first (in the example just named, the colour-code would be written as "Y+Br").

A plus-or-minus sign (±) preceding or following a letter, word, term, or abbreviation, implies "more-or-less" or "approximately".
