Description:

A senecio at the bottom of the hill about 750 mm tall. Interesting because same plant (or at least closely juxtaposed plants) some had ray florets and others did not. Does that imply that the two varieties are not distinct? Either way some flowers have ray florets so the variety subglabber has been suggested. Ref Pooley:MF p 226.
