Evergreen tree < 15 m tall. Flowers are white/pink and borne predominantly in September – April. Seed capsules are five-valved and borne year-round.
To help protect our environment:
Coastal habitats, dunes, cliffs, scrub, mangroves.
Seeds dispersed by water and gravity. Human-mediated dispersal through dumping of garden waste and deliberate plantings.
Potential to compete with native plants.
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.
