This very attractive walk starts opposite the Burnside Camp in Ellimatta Rd Anglesea.

There is a very good diversity of plants. The profusely flowering pink Silky Teatree was a highlight as were the delicate Twining Fringe Lilies.

We were delighted to see one Yellow Admiral butterfly.

At the top of the hill we enjoyed the panoramic view over Anglesea where the tide was very low exposing a rock platform out from the Anglesea beach.

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.
