Species Description

Sheep's-bit is a native perennial which grows 10-20 cm in height and flowers between May and August. The species rarely achieves a high level of abundance but the blue flowers add an especially appealing colour to the habitats where it grows as well as providing an important nectar source for foraging invertebrates.
