Senecio grandifolius

This usually unassuming plant in the corridor of the Glasshouse Range is now crowned with a spectacular corymbose inflorescence comprising hundreds of mustard yellow, star-shaped flowers.
When the parachute seeds develop (like those of a dandelion - they are both in the same family of Compositae, or Daisy), it looks a small white cloud has lodged in the dark green, paddle shaped leaves!
