Madeira Vine!

There’s a lot of Madeira Vine around Bellingen and the region and it’s never more noticeable than in early autumn when the flowers come out.

Madeira Vine (Anredera cordifolia) is a particularly vigorous climber and if left unchecked it has the potential to choke even the largest of forest trees. At our Western End of Bellingen Island site we dealt with vines as thick as a man’s wrist completely smothering huge old Casuarinas.

In case you’re not sure how to identify Madeira here’s what it looks like full flower.
