Significant sighting

2 Jul 2015

This is the first record of this annual North American grass on Canberra Nature Map. It thrives in open dry sandy situations, such as along the Murrumbidgee. Not as big a weed risk as African Love Grass, but its spines are a pest and as it is now only rarely established in the ACT, it is one that we would like to control

Author's notes
