The arid country of the APY Lands is home to many varieties of flower species. The Desert wildflowers, are particular species which carpet the landscape in a profusion of colour if the rain falls in spring. Purple and magenta parakeelya, pink and blue everlasting daisies, white and yellow daisies, lilac and purple mulla mullas, blue and purple swansonias are the most prolific. The flowers appear tiny and delicate but are tough and well adapted to the arid enviroment with rounded shapes low to the ground or long narrow shapes with flowers at the tips, all contributing to conserving moisture.
Anangu Pitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara Lands are in the far north of South Australia.
