Perennial, rhizomatous fern. Leaves are < 125 x 30 cm and bipinnate. Sori are round and produced in autumn – winter, with 1-5 pairs produced per secondary pinnae.
To help protect our environment:
Riparian margins, rocky sites, regenerating scrubland, forest, pasture, plantations.
Spores dispersed by wind.
May competitively displace native forest-dwelling ferns.
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.
