Deciduous shrub or small tree. Roots are nodulated. Leaves are compound and pinnate. Flowers are red/orange and are borne in showy inflorescences late spring – autumn. Seed pods are longitudinally winged.
To help protect our environment, from 1 September 2021:
Seasonally inundated habitat, perennial wetlands and watercourses, forest, scrub, pasture.
Seeds dispersed by water and gravity. Human-mediated dispersal through soil movement and deliberate plantings.
Forms dense stands, excluding native vegetation. In watercourses it can impede water flow, exacerbate flooding, bank destabilisation and erosion, and impede human access. Nitrogen fixer.
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.
