Description

Helichrysum intermedium, green and silver forms, locally common on argillite rock outcrop. There were three species of Helichrysum, H. intermedium, H. depressum and H. parviflorum growing in close proximity on the same outcrop. Some of the variation observed was possibly due to hybridistion involving these three species.

Celmisia, rare in mixed tussock grassland/herbfield. I think this plant is most likely to be a hybrid possibly between C. semicordata and C. discolor What do you think @janegosden
