Desmodium varians at Brogo, NSW - 9 Dec 2018

Identification history

Pea Desmodium varians 9 Dec 2018 JackieMiles

Author's notes

I had formed the impression that Desmodium gunnii was the species that grows in our forested areas with D. varians in more open grassland. However, after the widlfire of Sept 15, there appears to be quite a bit of D. varians popping up in the burnt forest. The long narrow leaflets on this plant indicate it is varians.
