It's a big problem here @susieg "Moth vine (Araujia sericifera) is regarded as a significant environmental weed in New South Wales and Queensland, and a minor environmental weed in Victoria and South Australia." https://keyserver.lucidcentral.org/weeds/data/media/Html/araujia_sericifera.htm #araujia #weed

Weeds can be so sneaky! Some of the worst ones here are beautiful eg morning glory. @susieg
