  • While peak flowering occurs over spring and summer, flowers are present on this perennial twining or prostrate vine all year, and as the plant is conspicuous, surveys for it can be undertaken at any time of year. However, plants are short lived and surveys for the species would be best conducted in the 2 years following fire or other disturbance likely to trigger emergence. It is possible that people chancing upon Calystegia marginata may at first mistake it for a weedy Convolvulus species.
  • Within Tasmania, Calystegia marginata has only been found on Clarke Island where it was observed growing along creeks in granite gullies in forest or dry scrub.

Permit: A permit is required under the Tasmanian Threatened Species Protection Act 1995 to 'take' (which includes kill, injure, catch, damage, destroy and collect), keep, trade in or process any specimen or products of a listed species. Additional permits may also be required under other Acts or regulations to take, disturb or interfere with any form of wildlife or its products, (e.g. dens, nests, bones). This may also depend on the tenure of the land and other agreements relating to its management. ​​​​​
