Mike - I think ACTPS tried to kill this plant last year - thanks for checking whether we were successful or not. Steve I think Scott Seymour was going to tackle this - would be interesting to know what techniques that tried

We are finding that best control method is stem-scrape with Vigilant II gel. Re-sprouting has happened with other treatments. Will put it on the list of jobs but fairly overwhelmed at the moment with urgent tasks.

I have just dug it out. There was only one stem but it was growing quickly.
