This is the first record of this plant naturalised in the ACT, it is a bad weed on the southern highlands and considered to be a sleeper weed elsewhere

Silke - this is a shrub to get rid of as a matter of priority are you or some-one in Ainslie weeders able to deal with it or do you want me to arrange Park staff to control?

Yes, we can deal with it. It's been there for a while but this is the first time I've seen it in flower and realised that it's something new. I'll get onto it.

The bush has been removed. I'll monitor the spot for possible re-sprouting.
