Asparagus Fern. This menace is from South Africa and like many other weeds..its seeds are spread by birds that eat the red berries. You can offer see this as a feature plant in suburban gardens, especially in hanging baskets.
Cotoneaster. This is another weed from China which is highly invasive. It is a common garden plant which escapes into the bush and also acts as a food source for feral bird species.
Senna/Cassia This is another nasty piece of work from South America which was imported here as a garden plant..It is very invasive and thrives in all conditions.
Morning Glory This is another ostensibly “pretty” garden plant but once it gets into the bush it can be a nightmare to remove. A native of China, it was used for medicinal purposes due to the laxative properties of its seeds.
Ochna is a native of South Africa with bright yellow flowers. It is also known as the Mickey Mouse Bush due to the plant’s red sepals and black seed which has a passing resemblance to the Disney character. Another rampant invader of our bushland.
