  1. Hi Lisa, I have missed your posts! Jersey Cudweed is found on every continent except Antarctica but may be a weed in the Americas. Jersey Cudweed, like many daisy family plants, has had many name changes. The WA Florabase is currently calling it Helichrysum luteoalbum while Victoria has changed it from Helichrysum luteoalbum to Laphangium luteoalbum but NSW is still calling it by the much older name Pseudognaphalium luteoalbum. How confusing for us poor amateurs! My own central Victorian garden has plenty of Jersey Cudweed thanks to the high rainfall over winter and spring.

    1. Hi Steven, How wonderful to find this message! Yes, I will need to post more regularly than I have been. Lots of photos and ideas, less time to research. Thanks for the information about Jersey Cudweed. I still find it a fascinating plant to look at and it’s great to know all of the name changes. I’m finding that a lot of the orchid names are changing too, which as you say, does make it difficult to be accurate. Thanks for your informative message! Look out for a new post soon! Lisa 🙂
