Warning about these flowers. We have found when attending to these plants that they can
harbour the dreaded white tail spiders, which are capable of giving a very nasty bite. The
effects of this bite can last for years with the area swelling and becoming very ugly and
ulcerated. This is in Melbourne and we don't know whether this happens in other areas of
Australia or even if the spider lives in other States. Never-the-less it always pays to wear
gloves and to be just be a little bit careful when attending to your garden where ever you live.
