Invasive or naturalised species

  13 Jul 2015

Thanks Gavin, TAMS is trying to eradicate this plant from this site and the ACT, as it is highly invasive elsewhere. Not sure when Spanish Heath was first noticed on Percival Hill, but this may be the first record of this plant being invasive in the ACT.
