Chinese Violet is a Proirity Weed in Hunter LGAs (Click this link for status in your LGA) 

A rapidly growing perennial creeper which typically grows in 1 m high, sprawling matts, however will grow over existing vegetation. Flowers are white bell shaped with two parallel purple lines inside the flower.

It is a potentially serious environmental and agricultural weed in Australia as it can completely smother other vegetation, removing habitat, and reducing biodiversity and productivity. This weed grows in tropical and subtropical areas and threatens biodiversity in these areas. (Source: NSW Weedwise)
