Author's notes

Kurrajong Point. Major weed. There are lots of weeds at the edge of the Lake. One day there could be a major weed removal program!

This is a native, not a weed.

I thought you meant all the real weeds (not native) that are here.

Importantly, it is not regarded as a weed locally, and provides good habitat for some birds.
