Sixteen enthusiastic walkers enjoyed a lovely walk on a sandy track, through light eucalyptus forest with open heathlands north of the now closed power station.

Group

We all admired the pleasant views over the valley and especially the Epacris Impressa ( Common Heath) and the Xanthorrhoea (Grasstrees).

The Epacris Impressa is always delightful with its attractive display of pink, red and white and the Grasstrees are absolutely beautiful.

Weed of the month

Freesia

Freesia

Freesia refracta and Freesia alba X F. leichtlinii are declared weeds in the Surf Coast Shire because they spread easily and threaten to invade bushland. Freesias are perennial herbs that die back in summer and produce new foliage in winter. The highly fragrant trumpet-shaped flowers appearing in spring are white to cream and pink with yellow markings, shaded purple on outer surface. Each plant has at least two corms, one below the other, thus requiring deep digging to remove them.

More details about how to control this weed can be found in the archive of Weeds of the Month.
