Description
Bidgee Widgee is a creeping, tangled mat-like herb with brown, globular seed heads on stalks to about 20 cm. Commonly found across the entire Bluff, it is a useful soil-binding plant on slopes, having roots developing at each node. Minute barbs on the seed head assist seed distribution by clinging onto the fur or clothes of passers-by.
