Coronidium gunnianum (swamp everlasting) is a small, upright, woolly perennial herb with small, round, yellow, daisy flowers. In Tasmania, it occurs in eastern and central parts of the State from the Cambridge to Hadspen in grasslands on heavy soils and riverine woodlands in areas often inundatedThe restricted area of occupancy and low abundance puts this species at risk from losses due to chance or inadvertent events. Climatic changes such as increased temperatures, fires and drought may impact the species persistence and recruitment.
