To help protect our environment, from 1 September 2022, you:
Forest, swamps, riparian margins, rocky outcrops, coastal areas, urban areas.
Seeds dispersed by birds, possibly by mammals and water. Human-mediated dispersal through deliberate plantings.
Potential to competitively exclude native vegetation. May compete with the closely related taonga species patete (S. digitata).
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.
