Critter of the week: Dryland Sow Thistle

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:30 pm on 12 July 2019

This week, Nicola Toki, Doc's Threatened Species Ambassador tells us about Dryland Sow Thistle, a beautiful nationally vulnerable daisy showing interesting colour variation in its leaves: grey-brown-green.

It is cryptic and can be very hard to find – particularly when grey-brown coloured and blending into the grassland.
