Native to southern Africa, fireweed is a daisy-like herb and is often mistaken with closely related natives. It competes with pasture and is toxic to livestock. 

Within the Wide Bay Burnett, Fireweed is currently restricted to the southern region of Gympie Regional Council and is targeted for eradication under the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Biosecurity Strategy 2017-2022.
