Conserving the hill
Then the odd specimen of Hopbush (Dodonaea viscosa) appeared and showed itself to be drought and fire-resistant. Shortly afterwards a series of surprises appeared, all among the granite rocks. There was the rare Flat-leafed bushpea (Pultenaea platyphylla), only identified once we found the flowers. The Common rice flower (Pimelia humilis) started flowering as did Indigo (Indigofera australis). And in winter, on the rock slabs there are a variety of mosses and rock ferns (Pleurosorus rutifolius). The rocks shelter many inconspicuous little herbs like Blue heron’s bill (Erodium crinitum) and Early Nancy (Wurmbea dioica), even the odd Yam Daisy (Microseris lanceolata).
