War on Weeds

Updated: Jun 6, 2022

Invasive species can have serious impacts on threatened and vulnerable species, including many found in the Ramsar listed Moreton Bay wetlands.

Asparagus fern (Asparagus virgatus), also known as: broom asparagus. Asparagus fern is an erect herb or shrub originally introduced as an ornamental plant. It is an emerging environmental weed over a wide range of coastal and sub-coastal habitats.

Identifying and reporting invasive plants helps to minimise the impacts that weeds can have on our environment and ecosystem. Unfortunately, they can be very difficult to identify, and can sometimes be confused with plants that are not invasive, including native or endangered species. Some weeds also look very different in their juvenile and mature stages.

Healthy Land and Water have information on what to look out for.

Moreton Bay Regional Council give details on Weed Identification.
