Abrotanella forsteroides – These little star shaped plants form great colonies that can cover several metres and be up to a metre high – all the more extraordinary considering each little leaf structure is about 7mm across.
There are several types of alpine cushion bush in Tasmania and can form individual or group colonies.

  • Thank you Donovan.
    No, the winner was Rosie with a fagus study.

    How cool is this??? Great shot, Garth! Makes me feel even more guilty for the big one I stepped on though… they’re so delicate!! Claire said they take about 20 years to recover if they’re stepped on :(

  • Thank you very much Mieke. It is terrible some places, you almost cannot help but step on them and there are some that actually have deep footholes worn in them.

    beautiful ~ are they soft? fabulous shot ~ xx

  • Thank you Linda, they look soft, look like enormous green fluffy pillow mounds, but paradoxically they aren’t. They are very hard and a little bit spiky but also very delicate.
