SOMETHING TO BE AWARE OF
Found in my garden, probably a baby Giant Stinger tree – dendrocnide excelsa – which can grow to 40 m tall into a typical buttressed soft wood rain forest tree, its mullberry like fruits are eaten and then spread by birds.
Gympie Gympie – Dendrocnide moroides – grows to 2 m tall and has a much more severe sting, could grow also in this area.
This one came up in a plant container and as I found out, even at this size it can sting.
A 1.5 m specimen. The eaten patches on the leaves are a typical identification indicator for this tree.
