Summary
Pluchea carolinensis is a 1 to 2.5 metre high shrub. It usually occurs in open and disturbed areas, such as roadsides and pastures. This fast-growing shrub can form dense stands in dry habitats. It can compete with fodder plants in pasture and with native plants in natural areas. It can be very invasive in coastal areas on limestone substrates as is the case in French Polynesia. This shrub is now widespread in many Pacific islands where it is regarded as an aggressive weed.
