Perennial stoloniferous, succulent herb. Stems are < 6 m long. Leaves are triangular and finger-shaped. Flowers are < 10 cm in diameter, yellow/pink/red and borne in October – February.
To help protect our environment:
Coastal cliffs, sand dunes.
Seeds dispersed by mammals. Vegetative spread from stem fragments.
Smothers and competes with native vegetation and modifies soil chemistry. Reduces germination and survival of native vegetation and decreases native species’ richness. Affects genetic diversity of related native species through hybridisation.
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.
