Post by: pharper1 on January 12, 2018, 02:17:27 PM
HI All

     I am trying to track down this weed very common around the freshwaters of Sydney  Nepean, Georges, Woronora, Lane cove
found some recently in the Kangaroo River Kangaroo Valley  appears to be in many creeks Toongabbie Cabramatta that I have seen
Without being to alarmist its bad  because it disrupts the ecosystem of the river chokes out native vegetation and will completely dominate a waterway with no natural predator even carp wont eat it.
It will only get worsehttp ://weeds.dpi.nsw.gov.au/WeedImages/ShowPhoto/406
If you have seen it report it to your local government agency or let me know peter@bettersafe.com.au
