Significant sighting

5 May 2017

I am not familiar with this plant but I think Isaacs Ridge is the only site in the ACT where it has been recorded. I gather that it is a major weed in the mountains to the north-west of Melbourne, but hopefully it is to dry and cold for it to flourish here - still a good one to continue to get rid of Mike

I have walked (climbed) past this plant several times waiting for flowers because they are quite distinctive. Unfortunately I was too late. This plant is not far from plants removed in 2012.
