Victoria is a state with significant climatic variation in a relatively small geographic area. The state is home to an interesting and diverse flora. The identification of 27 common invasive urban plants is meant to represent those of greatest concern to the state as a whole. It is important to remember that an invasive plant in neighbouring states may not be invasive in Victoria and vice versa. It is prudent to seek sound local advice before making plant selection.

Victoria is home to many significant national parks and state forest areas. It is of paramount importance that sound plant advice is sought before planting adjacent to these sensitive areas. Consideration must be given to appropriate plant choice as birds and other animals can distribute seeds into nearby bush-land and natural areas causing immeasurable destruction of natural habitat.
