In the Blue Mountains we have an endless battle with introduced
weeds. Here are some of them: agapanthus, russ tree, silky oak, wandering
jew, jasmine, honey suckle and privet (large and small leaf varieties). As
you'll probably guess, these were introduced by homesick English migrants.
A bit further down the mountain, the morning glory plant is also making a
mess, but the privet is probably the most invasive of all. We have all sorts
of weed control programs and volunteer groups trying to get it out of our
natural bushland areas but I think it's a battle we won't win- particularly
in the short term.
