This Flame Pea shrub grows in the South West of Australia. Joan has recreated this beautiful Western Australian plant in stitch. A perfect way to showcase these lovely flowers. The stitched floral spray features buds, leaves and flowers and can be displayed well in a small vase or specimen tube.


Chorizema cordatum
Chorizema cordatum

Flame Pea

Chorizema cordatum Lindl.

The genus Chorizema contains approximately eighteen species and all but one are endemic to Western Australia. The generic name has been said to be derived from the Greek choros (dance) and zema (a drinking vessel), given by the botanist Labillardiere in 1792 when the plant was discovered near a waterhole by a thirsty expedition party. 

distribution mapChorizema cordatum, commonly known as the Heart-leaf Flame Pea, occurs naturally in the forests of south-western Australia on gravelly or loamy soils. When in flower this small scrambling shrub is conspicuous with its loose racemes of orange-red or yellow pea flowers. The plant flowers in spring; the blooms are in racemes up to 12 cm long and are borne either terminally or in leaf axils

Joan writes:

"Joining the EGWA in 2009 I was introduced to the magical world of needle art. In recent years I have taken myself down the rabbit warren of 3D and Raised Embroidery techniques. My hope is for members of my workshop to go away with enhanced skills and stitching confidence. My project is a starting point only."

Joan is a very experienced embroidery teacher with a wealth of knowledge.  This will be an enjoyable learning experience for all participants.
