Thomasia is a genus of small Australian shrubs, mostly restricted to West Australia. The Paper Flower is the one species found in Victoria. What appear to be petals are in fact the sepals and the petals are minute (only 1mm). It is a low bush growing on rocky slopes in open forest.
I purchased a plant which has done well and flowers every spring, with fairly long-lasting flowers. The plant is quite well suited to a rockery.
