Doryanthes excelsa
Doryanthes excelsa, commonly known as the gymea lily, is a flowering plant in the family Doryanthaceae that is endemic to coastal areas of New South Wales near Sydney. It has sword-like leaves more than 1 metre long and it grows a flower spike up to 6 metres high. The apex of the spike bears a large cluster of bright red flowers, each 10 centimetres across. Its common name is derived from the name given to the plant by the indigenous Eora people. The Sydney suburbs of Gymea and Gymea Bay are named after the lily.
