Dense, clumping, rhizomatous rush < 4 m tall. Stems are triangular. Flowers are small, brown and borne in drooping inflorescences in November – April. Nuts are small and cream/grey.
To help protect our environment:
Brackish riparian margins and estuaries, drainage ditches, pasture.
Vegetative spread from rhizomes, dispersed by water.
Forms dense stands, excluding native sedge species. Potential to alter soil conditions by stabilising sand bars and river margins.
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.
