Species Notes for this Location:
Boneseed (Chrysanthemoides monilifera ssp. monilifera) was first introduced to New Zealand as an ornamental plant, and was first recorded as growing wild in 1870. It is now found throughout the North Island, mostly on coastal sites, and in the South Island around Nelson, Banks Peninsula and Dunedin (EBOP, 2005).
C. m. monilifera occurs mainly in coastal habitats, invading plant communities on coastal cliffs and dunelands, and inland grassland and shrub communities. It underwent a lengthy lag phase in New Zealand, but appears to have entered a phase of rapid expansion in recent years (Winks et al. 2004).
Management Notes for this Location:
Boneseed (C. m. monilifera) is banned from sale, propagation and distribution in New Zealand.
