(Asystasia gangetica subspecies micrantha)
Chinese Violet is a national priority weed and is the subject of a Council eradication project. Almost all recorded infestations in Australia occur in Port Stephens. For more information:
Pampas grass (cortaderia species)
While it is not yet a major weed in NSW, our efforts are focused on ensuring this weed does not take hold.
In many cases, garden plants are the seed source for infestations. Individual plants have the ability to produce vast quantities of windborne seed — up to 100,000 per flower head, which can infest areas within a 25km radius.
Prickly pears (Opuntia species)
There are many different Prickly pear species — in Port Stephens, our focus is on the Opuntia species. This Weed of National Significance must not be sold in NSW.
Mother of millions (Bryphyllum species)
Mother of millions is a drought hardy succulent garden plant. It rapidly produces tiny plant-lets that quickly form new colonies. All species and hybrids of Bryophyllum are declared noxious weeds.
As the name suggests, Mother of millions reproduces rapidly — producing hundreds of tiny plantlets which quickly form new colonies.
