Annual Weed


Spring Whitlow Grass

This little plant is rather amazing as I have been clearing from one of the gardens where it grows. First of all it flowers really early in the spring and it also grows in sand and compacted areas where other plants don’t do all that great. The other interesting feature is the size differences, some will grow so very tiny you can hardly see them. In the above picture even that smaller plant to the right is pretty large compared to some I’ve been weeding. So this annual is very efficient at turning whatever energy it can into seeds! Imagine the past week I’ve hand weeded one by one a five gallon bucket of these little buggers.

I know the next picture is repeating the one above, but this is a temporary place holder for this page until I can get another weed picture taken I want to put here instead. :)
