Referred to as the 'Flower of Blood' by some Koori groups. This name comes from a legend which tells of a young woman who escaped marriage to an elderly man by eloping with her young lover. The shunned man with some of his friends tracked the couple down and killed them both, as well as the relatives with whom they had lived. Some time later, the old man returned to the place where he had slain the lovers and found the ground covered with the scarlet flowers that we know as the Sturt's Desert Pea.
