    Notes sur l'espèce pour cette localité:
    Cestrum nocturnum was listed as naturalised at Otumoetai, Tauranga by Webb et al. (1988). In the Bay of Plenty Region, Cestrum spp. are often used as hedging and can be found in and around paddocks and forest margins as a garden escape (Environment Bay of Plenty, 2010). Cestrum spp. in the Bay of Plenty Region have been reported as being vigorous growers, capable of forming dense undergrowth in forests and sheltered gullies (Environment Bay of Plenty, 2010). Stock death resulting from Cestrum spp. ingestion has also been reported in this area (Environment Bay of Plenty, 2010), with 120 g (about 60 leaves) of ingested material capable of killing a 400 kg cattle beast (Environment Bay of Plenty, 2003).

    While Cestrum nocturnum has not been included in the Bay of Plenty Regional Pest Management Plan, Cestrum spp. have been prohibited from propagation, sale and distribution (Environment Bay of Plenty, 2010). Furthermore, the herbicide Tordon Brushkiller is reccommended for use in controlling C. nocturnum, either by cutting individual stumps and painting with a solution of one part Tordon Brushkiller to 20 parts of water, or spraying larger infestations with 50 ml of Tordon Brushkiller in 10 L of water (Environment Bay of Plenty, 2010).
