Cat’s Claw Creeper… Australia’s worst weed?

Cat’s claw creeper (Dolichandra ungui-cati) is a long lived woody vine which is native to the Caribbean, Central and South America. It was declared a Weed of National Significance in Australia in 2012 due to its invasiveness and potential impacts. Anyone that has tried to control cat’s claw creeper or have witnessed the impacts to native vegetation and sadly, to entire creek or river systems, knows just how bad this weed is.
