I am doing my PhD on this species, as well as L. hyblaeum and it is highly invasive and weedy. It has invaded numerous sites across the south coast of Australia and has caused severe damage to many coastal habitats. This plant should not be used, there are many beautiful native plant species that can be grown which will not have the negative effects on our coastal habitats that L. binervosum has.

This plant has a high potential to invade and displace native plants in coastal estuaries. Please do not plant near coastal estuaries. It is incredibly weedy and outcompetes everything around causing widespread ecological damage. Keep it in the garden and limit its' spread! Thank you.
