Brenda Gael Smith   •  Landlines: Paterson`s Curse   9 year donor view website

Paterson’s Curse (echium plantagineum) is one of Australia’s most conspicuous invasive weeds. The beauty of the purple flowers as they traverse the countryside belies their toxic nature. Sheep and cattle producers lose millions each year in lost productivity in pastures, control costs, and wool contamination.
