This is the first time I have seen this weed in the ACT. It is mainly considered a weed of agriculture, but the following weed risk assessment by Tasmanian officials did rate it quite highly - so probably a good idea to try and control, particularly if only a few hundred plants at present

Don photographed it near Grassy Creek on the Boboyan Road in March 2006. A sleeper?
