Summary
Thunbergia grandiflora is a climbing vine native to Asia which is able to smother native vegetation. Introduced and cultivated in many regions as an ornamental, it has become a widespread invasive plant. It invades pastures and roadsides forming impenetrable stands and is a major threat to remnants of tropical forests fragmented by agriculture and urbanisation. Thunbergia grandiflora is one of the most problematic invasive plants in Australia. It can cover 100% of the ground over several hectares, excluding all native plants.
