Weed library - Bridal Creeper (Asparagus asparagoides)

Is a highly invasive weed smothering out native vegetation and pastures.

It produces glossy green leaves on twisting stems that can grow up to 3m long.

Established plants form thick underground tubers which make it difficult to control.

  • Use a high quality non ionic wetting agent like Weed Forces Holdfast for best results helping to improve wetting and herbicide penetration of the plant foliage
  • Apply mid June to Late August
  • To achieve complete control, follow up applications over at least two seasons are required.
