Dampiera fusca, a follow-up
Back in November I reported on a splendid day spent in the Tinderry Nature Reserve near Canberra with Roger Farrow. The highlight was finding a mass-flowering of the rare and beautiful Dampiera fusca. Roger has just sent me a link to a video of a follow-up expedition from the Australian National Botanic Garden to collect seed for their seed bank. It's worth a look: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-03-15/going-on-a-seed-hunt/4576734
