Vulnerable: Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016
The mauve burr-daisy is a sprawling, branched herb that grows to 20cm tall and up to 1m wide.
It is found in montane and subalpine grasslands in the Australian Alps (Monaro and Kosciuszko regions), and colonises bare patches, often on roadsides.
It does not survive in heavily-grazed pastures.
- Intensification of grazing by feral horses.
- Invasion of weeds.
- Loss and degradation of habitat and populations caused by road works and clearing for residential and agricultural developments.
