Dendrocnide moroides - The Gympie Gympie.
Is anybody in possession of a small tree that they would be willing to part with for a reasonable price.

Due to its risk and complexities the species is endangered and I would like to do my part in preserving it.

I have been unable to locate seeds or a viable cutting, I have a huge preference for a manageable cutting. However It would be like Christmas. If I could get a few seeds.

Kind regards

Mathew

I'm assuming you are referring to the stinging bush with the big leaves?

Contact Burung Landcare nursery in Maleny, Mathew.
Because it grows on the range, it is likely they might have seed or know where seed can be legally harvested.
I never knew it was endangered because it grow well along the range behind the sunshine coast.

Yes! I will and yes I am referring to that exact nettle. I was reading up on it, it is. Endangered in NSW, where a few of it's predators are winning the battle.

However I believe along the range the conditions might be more favorable and human destruction less.

Thank you for your advice and contact, I will call them today!
