Occurrence remarks 0.5 ha. 20 plants, uncommon. Came up in seed from Wallaby grass planted about four years ago. They will hand pull, bag and remove all plants found. In 2009 they planted some rows with Wallaby grass (Danthonia) seed so the vineyard would only need slashing twice a year and not on a regular basis. 20 plants found over half a dozen rows. Was hard to spot the crown-like corona even with the use of a hand lens.
