Download weed information brochures and posters

Our brochures provide easy to follow information on the ecology of the weed:
• Life cycle • How it’s spread • Why it’s a threat • Guidelines for control

Several other brochures available upon request.

Agapanthus

Agapanthus praecox

Native to South Africa. Reproduces primarily by seed but also spreads gradually from underground rhizomes forming dense large continually extending clumps.

Arum Lily

Zantedeschia aethiopica

Can form dense stands which can dominate and displace native vegetation. Warning: Use gloves – All parts of Arum lilies are toxic. May also be toxic to stock.

Asparagus Fern

Asparagus scandens

Grows up into plant canopies strangling native vegetation as well as forming dense mats of roots under the ground. Particularly aggressive in bushland near creek lines.

Blackberry

Rubus species

Blackberry can form dense thickets which dominate and displace native vegetation, prevent regeneration of native plant species and reduce habitat for fauna.

Bleeding Heart Tree

Homalanthus
novo-guineensis

Native to the Kimberley in WA, NT and NSW-VIC border to far north QLD, predominantly growing in rainforest. Can dominate and displace native vegetation.

Dolichos Pea

Dipogon lignosus

Vigorous perennial climbing vine with twining stems that thicken with age. Reaches about 6 metres high and often forms a dense impenetrable mass on fences and plants.

Wonga-wonga Vine

Pandorea pandorana

A vigorous vine that can form dense layers in shrub and tree canopies killing native vegetation. It is spreading from gardens to bushland areas.

Myrtle-leaved Milkwort

Polygala myrtifolia

Native to South Africa, now a garden escapee. Can form dense stands especially in sandy coastal habitats.

Sydney Golden Wattle

Acacia longifolia

Listed as a Pest Plant within the Shire of Denmark. Requires control. Often confused as a seedling with our precious local native wattles.

Taylorina

Psoralea pinnata

Native to Southern Africa. Introduced as a source of nectar for bees. Can form dense stands particularly along creek lines, roadsides and drains.

Victorian Tea Tree

Leptospermum
laevigatum

Another plant frequently mistaken for a local native. On Denmark Shire’s Pest Plant list and requires controlling.

Watsonia

Watsonia Species

Can generally survive fire and will flower and set seed prolifically following a summer fire. Can form dense stands particularly along rivers, creek lines, roadsides and drains.

Lantana

Lantana camara

A garden escapee spread by birds and other animals. The cultivated form may cross-pollinate with the weedy variety, in turn becoming a weed in bushland.

Japanese Honeysuckle

Lonicera japonica

A woody vine. A garden escapee spread by garden waste dumpings in the bush.

Gorse

Ulex europaeus

A garden escapee spread by birds and other animals. The cultivated form may cross-pollinate with the weedy variety, in turn becoming a weed in bushland.

Kangaroo Apple

Solanum laciniatum

A garden escapee spread by birds and other animals. The cultivated form may cross-pollinate with the weedy variety, in turn becoming a weed in bushland.
