The Windellama area in the NSW Southern Tablelands has one of the highest densities of threatened plant life in the state.
Three threatened plants are broadly distributed along Windellama roadsides and private property:
- few-seeded bossiaea (Bossiaea oligosperma)
- Michelago parrot-pea (Dillwynia glaucula)
- matted bush-pea (Pultenaea pedunculata).
The Office of Environment and Heritage has been working to document the roadside occurrences of threatened flora in Windellama and to assist Goulburn Mulwaree Council to ensure that the management of civil works is sympathetic to the beautiful and rare native plants and flowers in the area.
This work has been supported by the Windellama Landcare group and other local landholders who are keen to see the long-term survival of these special local species on the roadsides, public reserves and private lands in the community.
The rare Wolgan snow gum (Eucalyptus gregsoniana) is also located along roadsides in the area and care was taken to consider this important species.
