Confirmation that this rare alpine shrub has survived the devastating burns on the summit of Mt Namadgi.

User's notes

The burn on mr namadgi has been severe, but 3 shrubs have survived. I couldn’t find any seedling coming up, (not that I searched particularly hard). A significant find for this species.

Awesome work @Tapirlord to find this, I know personally the amount of effort required to get to the summit of Mt Namadgi, it is substantial to say the least.

Thanks, @MatthewFrawley , it certainly is quite the climb. Absolutely worth it for the views though, as I'm sure you'll agree!!
