Seeds of Sida

Country News is reporting that Aussies should be on the lookout for a potential invasive plant in northern Victoria: ivy-leaf sida (Malvella leprosa). Also known as alkali mallow and Sida hederacea, the plant is native to the western U.S., and is considered a weed in several states. Bonus points to Country News for using the plant's scientific name.

Thanks to a member of the ALIENS-L listserver for posting a link to the story.
