Asparagus africanus

Climbing Asparagus Fern

This plant is a weed of national significance.

Climbing asparagus has the potential to invade a wide range of coastal and sub-coastal plant communities from Cape York to northern New South Wales, but has been recorded as far south as Sydney.

It strongly competes with native ground cover and understorey plants by forming a dense mat of rhizomes and roots that can prevent the germination and establishment of other species.

It can attain very large and continuous infestations.
