Hi Everyone, please see a suspect new weed found between Goomalling and Northam (about 100 km from Perth), we would appreciate any suggestions for what it might be, thanks! The longest leaf at the base is about 55mm long, the whole thing is about 155mm long, I know I'm asking a lot but hoping somebody will recognise it, we have marked the site where it was found and will continue to observe it until it flowers. regards, Sandy (msg received via e-mail 20030812)
