Plant is an invasive alien weed

It should not be assumed that a plant is a weed just because it 'looks like one'. Use this character with caution, and leave it out if in doubt. 'Invasive alien weeds' are loosely defined as species not native to Australia that are growing in native plant communities, invading and sometimes becoming dominant or naturalised.
