Many Landcare volunteers in the Eurobodalla Shire have been targeting the invasive weed Cassia in the past few weeks. The flowers are bright yellow, so they are very conspicuous. If you have them in the garden or bush, please remove them.
Cassia will very quickly invade native ecosystems, particularly in coastal areas. It is a very fast growing plant that can suppress the growth of native species and displace them. Cassia produces large quantities of long living seed pods.
Cassia invades waterways, gardens, disturbed sites, waste areas, roadsides, closed forests, forest margins and urban bushland. Most Landcare groups prioritise this invasive weed.
