Weed profile: Yellow soldier
Yellow soldier was first recorded as naturalised south of Perth, Western Australia, in 1957, probably after escaping from a garden planting. It has since become a problem weed and is spreading through tuart (Eucalyptus gomphocephala) and banksia woodlands on sandy calcareous soils. It could become a significant environmental problem because it replaces native herbs and annuals in both disturbed and relatively intact bushland.
