Multi-stemmed, perennial climbing vine. Leaves are thin, elongated, pale green and pointed. Flowers are tubular, red/orange/gold and hang in clusters from summer – winter. Fruit is fleshy, round, bright orange, and borne in May – August.
To help protect our environment:
Disturbed forest, forest margins, lake and riparian margins, shrubland.
Seeds dispersed by birds. Vegetative spread from rhizomes and tubers.
Smothers native vegetation and prevents seedling establishment, altering successional recruitment. Can cause dermatitis or allergic reactions.
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.
