Now’s the time of year when Council needs your help to control the highly invasive pest plant, Chilean Needle Grass.

The grass flowers during Spring and Summer, making it easier to spot. Look out for its purple-tinged, spikey seed heads and its lime green colour. It is a sharp, angular grass, not soft or droopy like most other grasses.

If you think you’ve seen Chilean Needle Grass, take a photo of it, record the location and email Council at: biosecurity@marlborough.govt.nz

At this time of year the seeds can easily hitch a ride so if you’re in an infested area please be aware of the risk and the regulations that apply.
