Bridal Veil is a highly invasive environmental weed. The climbing stems of Bridal Veil form a dense canopy which smothers other vegetation, and the masses of underground roots can extend to form a thick, dense mat which destroys under-story plants.

It is easily spread by birds who eat the fruit, and the underground stems are capable of vegetative reproduction as well. Bridal Veil is widespread from South Australia to the east coast and prefers cool to warm temperate environments and fertile well drained soils.  It is frost tolerant and its perennial root system enables it to survive summer drought. Bridal Veil was introduced to Australia as a garden plant in the 1870s and was popular in bridal bouquets and hanging baskets. (framed)
