Tuft-forming fern. Rhizomes and stolons are erect to spreading, produce long runners and have hairy potato-like tubers. Fronds are < 120 x 7 cm, erect, evergreen and pinnate.
To help protect our environment:
Terrestrial, epiphytic or epilithic habitats, forest, rocky outcrops, coastal scrublands, wetland and riparian margins, roadsides, wasteland, urban areas.
Vegetative spread from tubers. Human-mediated dispersal through dumping of garden waste and deliberate plantings.
Forms dense stands, suppressing native regeneration.
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.
