Perennial shrub < 2 m tall. Leaves are large, < 20 cm in diameter, rounded, toothed and hairy, with pale undersides. Flowers are yellow, daisy-like and borne in large clusters in winter – spring. Seeds bear a winged pappus.
To help protect our environment:
Scrub, open forest, roadsides, grassy banks, wetlands, coastal habitats.
Seeds dispersed by wind. Vegetative spread from stem layering. Human-mediated dispersal through dumping of garden waste and deliberate plantings.
Dense growth excludes other plant species and may alter plant community composition and structure. Poisonous if ingested and contact may cause skin irritation.
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.
