Madeira Vine could cost you $400

Madeira Vine (Mignonette Vine) is a ‘notifiable weed’ which means it must be reported to Council.

Madeira VineI spotted this, left,  on the northern side of the boardwalk, then had it identified.  This is a very serious weed.

It’s hard to believe it could get this big, and in flower, without it being reported earlier.

They were shocked as it’s clear that it has grown from dumped rubbish.  They will return and do a full survey of the surrounding area looking for any spread.

Mignonette VineIf YOU dumped it you have caused a nightmare.  Shame on you.

There is a $400 fine for dumping rubbish.
