This large daisy went unnoticed on our Beringa and Chereninup Reserves in south-west Western Australia, until botanist Libby Sandiford visited with her eagle eye looking for something different.
Libby has been collecting plants on our FitzStirling reserves for almost a decade and has found around 960 taxa so far on six reserves totalling just over 4,300 hectares.
This daisy is as yet un-named by science and its phrase name is Olearia sp. Jerramungup.
Only a few plants were found so this plant may be listed soon as a priority species. Our FitzStirling reserves protect many rare and threatened plant species.
