This is similar to another unidentified plant further south but is in a more accessible location so it will be easier to keep an eye on it until it flowers and reveals itself.

Wrong habitat for Olearia lirata, though the leaves are similar.

Photo of developing buds added 22 Sep. Should this be a new sighting?

Have had very similar (identical?) plants / clones growing in my garden for approx. 30 years, originally obtained from SGAP (now ANPS) Canberra. One or 2 instances of spontaneous spread in the garden. Not entirely identical to Brindabella forms of Olearia lirata, but very close. Hope not mistaken exotic.

Aaron you have caused a problem by making the last photo the one providing location. Can you put it back to the first or let us make the choice?

From the angle the photo was taken at, I did not realise that the leaves on this plant were opposite each other. This fact rules out Olearia lirata.

I have been back and checked. Leaves definitely alternate. View from top of the bank was deceptive.
