Apparently the Cootamundra wattle (which I think is pretty!) is invasive

some places. Pittosporum is too, but I don't think it's very attractive.

Anything out of its normal area has the capacity to be a weed.
Corymbia torelliana is one of my favourite trees, but is native to FNQ
is a pest in Brisbane.....

well, they do say a weed is any plant you don't want in the spot it's in...

incredible!!!!!!!!! yet, it actually doesn't get out of control in our area,

planted a little flowering bush.
