Re-cycling & re-using weeds.

 


On Sept 23rd (see the last two blog posts) one Curtin Student chose a beautiful and age old method to recycle and reuse weeds! A daisy chain of Veldt daisy or Dimorphotheca ecklonis (was Osteospermum ecklonis).This weed is a woody perennial from South Africa which sends roots down from plant nodes. It is spreading rapidly in Cottesloe. The large daisy flowers in winter and spring are bluish-white or purple. It often grows locally as a garden escape or from garden rubbish dumped in natural areas.This plant should not be grown near our local bushland or dunes.For more information go to:
