Evergreen shrub < 2.5 m tall. Leaves are pinnate and alternate. Flowers are yellow, tubular and borne year-round. Fruit is glossy, black and < 8 mm in diameter.
To help protect our environment:
Wasteland, rocky outcrops, exposed places, forest gaps, cliffs.
Seeds dispersed by birds. Vegetative spread from layering. Human-mediated dispersal through dumping of garden waste.
Forms dense patches, excluding native vegetation and preventing native seedling recruitment.
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.
