Pampas Lily of the Valley (Salpichroa organifolia)

Pampas Lily of the Valley (Salpichroa organifolia) is a scrambling plant capable of smothering small trees and wire fences alike, and originated in temperate South America as implied by the name. Declared noxious in Victoria, it is a colonist of urban wastes and margins where its woody root systems are hard to dislodge once established. In this case the plant holds 10+ metres of cyclone fence near the Yarra trail.
