Weed profile: Subterranean cape sedge
Subterranean cape sedge
The earliest record of subterranean Cape sedge as a naturalised plant in Australia was of a population found in a municipal reserve near Koonung Creek in North Balwyn, Melbourne in 1989. As an environmental weed, it can displace other vegetation and thus reduce the availability of habitat for native plants and animals, leading to a loss of biodiversity.
