Spanish Heath

Here is another weed to lookout for and it is very obvious at the moment. Many people think it is native to Australia but unfortunately it is not. Try and remove it before the flowers set seed.

Banish Spanish Heath

It looks like a native plant but Spanish Heath, Erica lusitanica, is an environmental weed. As you drive around you will see it flowering now and it is becoming more common on roadsides.

 

The seed is very fine so if you decide to pull some up make sure you catch the seed and don’t let is spread.
