Author's notes

Calotis lappulacea is a local native, (though planted on our place), seen here muscling its way into the orchard where drought has left bare patches in the ground cover.

We planted it as an ornamental around the house originally, from seed collected probably at Bemboka, but it has shown a terrific capacity to spread within the yard. The burrs stick to clothing. Its natural habitat seems to be bare ground, such as under trees and on cuttings or among rocks. We've had rather a lot of bare ground available lately. It will be interesting to see how well it persists if we continue to get rain the the grass recovers its usual vigour.
