From what I understand, this plant needs to be removed.
I'm not sure on the protocol here, do I leave it to the volunteer group that looks after Bruce ridge, should I contact someone, or can I just go up there again with a shovel?

Best time to control is in spring using herbicide - metsulfuron methyl. It has a large rhizome-like root system - so if dug out this must be removed. Job has been added to ACT Parks - Invasive Plants Program for spring.

Thanks for the sighting, great to be able to get on top of this weed before it becomes an unmanageable problem

Visited this site again today to check, manually removed one small plant in similar location. Will continue to monitor area for new incursions.
