1st ACT record of species. Do we treat as a weed or climate refuge?

Thanks for your photos. I have downloaded the original photo no. 1, rotated & cropped it then added it back to be used on the Species page.

Steve are we sure it is a weedy introduction - we are close to its known southern extent- and if it is a weed is it one we worry about or is it a species shifting its bioclimatic range in response to climate change?
