[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On the plateau and slopes just under Australia’s highest mountain (Kosciuszko) there are masses of wild flowers in summer. Carpet heath (Pentachondra pumila) grows in dense mats. The white starry flowers are tiny, about 4mm long, but the most striking feature are the bright red berries which are about 8mm across, often with the flower still on top they form in late summer, stay green through winter under the snow and ripen once warm weather arrives.

Hello Ian,
Interesting idea to show your species of alpine flowers. This wild flower carpet looks great indeed. Amazing to see between the red berries the tiny white flowers able to grow. Something different from our European Alp vegetation.
Thanks and kind regards
