Description

Maggie paints the story of the rat-tail goosefoot or green crumbweed plant. In Maggie's language it is called Alpar. This small, erect herb is sticky to touch and scented heavily of citrus. Growing especially well in Mulga tree communities, it is found in abundance in Maggie's home in the Utopia Region, north east of Alice Springs.
