The perennial forb Clustered Everlasting is one of the few ground cover species that is not grazed by kangaroos and rabbits. We use the species to re-vegetate degraded sites that have a high presence of herbivores such as the grassy woodland behind The Fair in North Watson, the Majura paddock and the old sheep camp at Mt Majura’s ridge.
