Wanted: Miconia

Have you seen Miconia growing in Queensland? Native to  tropical America, miconia is a restricted invasive plant under the Biosecurity Act, 2014. Miconia is being targetted for early detection and eradication.

This small tree invades rainforest areas, competes with native plant species and impacts the habitat of native fauna. It is easily recognised by the distinctive purple underside of the leaves.
