14 plants with multiple bulbs, 28 seedlings/single bulbs over a 10 m section next to on road bike lane on north side of Adelaide avenue. Growing under planted Brittle Gums Checked under planted and weedy nearby cotoneatsers and along 200m stretch of roadside but no other plants. Removed all plants present.
