Bushland Weeds of the Sydney Region. These lists were compiled by the Bushland Weeds Education Group, Sydney (An initiative of the Australian Association of Bush Regenerators). They have been prepared by practising Bush Regenerators to provide information about which popular garden plants have been found to be troublesome or destructive weeds in bushland of the Sydney region. They can be considered reliable lists for horticultural educators, practising horticulturists and home gardeners, although they will no doubt be added to over the years.
