BONESEEDChrysanthemoides monilifera subsp. Monilifera
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS PLANT?Boneseed is a terrestrial weed that invades our parks and bushland. Boneseed plants can quickly cover large areas and outcompete native plants. This reduces habitat for our native fauna and limits the opportunities for suitable native food plants to grow.
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?Boneseed is a woody shrub with bright yellow daisy flowers. Boneseed leaves are oval with toothed edges that grow alternately along the stems.
HOW DOES IT SPREAD?Each Boneseed plant can produce 50,000 seeds per year. Seeds are spread by wind, water and through the movement of vehicles or machinery.
CONTROLFurther spread of Boneseed can be prevented by notifying Council’s Biosecurity Weed Officer to assist with identification and removal.If you have seen this plant, please contact our Biosecurity weed officer on 9707 9000.
A full list of weed species can be found in Schedule 3 of the Biosecurity Act (2015) and within the
Greater Sydney Regional Strategic Weed Management Plan.
