User's notes

Growing in the shade along the drainage line opposite Hackett water reservoir. Collection and scan W. Pix; identification Isobel Crawford. Maybe has arrived there like the Chilean Needle Grass with the grass clippings that a resident spreads along the drainage line after mowing in the back of his and his neighbour's gardens.
