One plant growing between main access way to buildings and wooden pier. Seems to fit this species better than S. nodiflorum because the calyx lobes though reflexed are broad and the mature fruits are dull rather than glossy. Flowers distinctly stellate, stamens 1-1.2 mm long.

Killed at a site normally associated with common wasps (aphid sugar on oak). It has been cold for two or three days, the German wasps who normally hunt insects have switched to nectar. This has implications for use of protein based baits.

Description

Still c.3.5-4mH.
Pruned as high as could reach with loppers Winter 2018.
Growth slowed but as top branches are too high to reach the tree was inexpertly - and incompletely - ringbarked some months later.
It did not flower in the Spring or summer. (Maybe still juvenile?)
Regrowth was mainly on lower stem, within canopy of dense young native tree foliage, and broken off or leaf stripped and partially broken as it emerged.
Native trees alongside have closed in a bit.
NB There are 2-3 other Tree privet within a metre, being controlled in different ways, and in some photos their foliage can be confused. This specimen currently has foliage at its top, and a few slender shoots from the trunk rubbed off today.
Monitoring continues.

Description

Seedlings germinated in basalt rock wall - a large plant had been growing here four years ago. Calystegia marginata appeared in this area in 2011, initially as a single plant. Its origins are unclear but it is probably indigenous to the area as I have also seen it in several sites around Auckland. The distinctive pale yellow-green, 'fish-tailed' often lobed sagitate leaves. The flowers of this species are white, and rather small (up to 20 mm long).
