More New Plants

At the November workday and while walking through the reserve  Jan spotted (and photographed) some more new plants,  Forked Comb Fern (Schizaea bifida) and a Grevillea X gaudichaudii, a natural hybrid of G. acanthifolia and G. laurifolia, both of which occur on the reserve.  Thanks to Jan for the excellent photos.

Thats now 125 plants on the reserve’s plantlist.

New Plants Observed

During our November workday 2 plants, not previously recorded in the reserve were spotted.

These were:

Geitonoplesium cymosum, Scrambling Lily

Grevillea acanthifolia

The Grevillea in particular was a surprise as it’s common around swamps and damp areas in Blackheath, not on top of a ridge where the reserve is.  Many thanks to Jan Allen for observation and plant ID.
