Terrestrial to emergent aquatic decumbent perennial grass. Stolons are long, creeping and form adventitious roots from nodes. Leaves are leathery, grey-green and < 80 x 20 cm long. Flowers borne in summer.
To help protect our environment, from 1 September 2021, you:
Brackish water, mudflats, mangroves, salt marshes, coastal turfs, riparian and estuarine margins, sand dunes, shingly shores, pastures, shrubland, roadsides.
Sets seed. Vegetative spread from stolons, dispersed by water and sand movement and contamination of machinery and livestock.
Forms dense mats, excluding native vegetation, altering plant community composition and dominating high priority ecosystems. Can displace burrowing fauna and shift invertebrate assemblages. May alter foraging habitat and food availability for shore birds and spawning and feeding grounds for fish.
Follow up treated areas 3 times per year. Encourage natural regeneration of native plants or replant treated areas where possible after 2-3 treatments to establish dense ground cover and minimise reinvasion.
CAUTION: When using any herbicide or pesticide please read the label thoroughly to ensure that all instructions and safety requirements are followed.
