Bitou bush, Chrysanthemoides monilifera subsp. rotundata is a perennial alien coastal shrub in the Asteraceae family, which is native to South Africa. Since its accidental introduction to Australia around 1908 and subsequent deliberate planting along the NSW coastline to stabilise sand dunes in the 1950–60s, bitou bush has become one of Australia’s worst environmental weeds.
