Dominates open, disturbed sites such as riparian margins, forest edges and scrub and excludes native vegetation.
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.
