Australian Plants as Weeds

Sunday, April 28 – 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

$2

Do Australian species planted in our gardens ever ‘jump the fence’ and become ‘garden thugs’ or environmental weeds, in the bush? 

Geoff Carr, botanical consultant, has an extensive knowledge of Australian species that have become weedy or caused hybridization problems for local species. Of several hundred Australian plant species naturalised outside their natural range, the most catastrophically invasive of weed species include Sweet Pittosporum (Pittosporum undulatum), Coast Wattle (Acacia longifolia subsp. sophorae), Coast Tea-tree (Leptospermum laevigatum) and Bluebell Creeper (Billardiera fusiformis).
