It is actually in the Queensland Restricted list. Can't buy sell or give away. Also must destroy all babies. Bit hard when there are several trees in my neighbourhood. I keep my yard clear though. @brightcolours

I've not seen any round here, thankfully. Although I do have a few on that list... It's an ongoing battle...

And it's a noxious weed in South Africa. http://keys.lucidcentral.org/keys/v3/eafrinet/weeds/key/weeds/Media/Html/Tecoma_stans_(Yellow_Bells).htm #noxiousweed

Obviously a real pest... but pretty. My tree would be about 10mt tall. It's been there a long time. 🌳 @brightcolours
