I was wandering around our site this morning just checking out the work done by the contractors on the Burr Medic – and low and behold on the eastern side at the bottom of the track, we have our local native clematis – this is the first time in 25 years I’ve seen this actually on our site!

Think this is very exciting, a new plant on site and it’s not a weed!

Clematis aristata, known as Australian clematis, wild clematis, goat’s beard or old man’s beard, is a climbing shrub of the family Ranunculaceae, found in eastern Australia in dry and wet forests of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. Wikipedia
