Calotis cuneifolia

Calotis cuneifolia
Calotis cuneifolia, Cooyar QLD, Feb 2016

These wiry little daisies are quite widespread and can usually be found minding their business in amongst the grasses in Eucalyptus woodlands.
Our local populations have white flowers, but elsewhere they can be found in pale shades of blue & purple. Whatever the colour, native bees & hover-flies like them just the same.
Their seeds form in little round burrs, so if you find these in your socks after traversing a grassy field then you can be pleased to know that Calotis is out there & doing fine, even if you didn't spot them.
