What Weed Is That?February 22, 2018
Our weed of the week is wild garlic. The stems of this plant are shorter and finer textured than those of wild onion, but people commonly refer to this as wild onion. The control method for both is the same. Wild garlic is a perennial plant with a garlic odor which develops from a bulb. These plants do produce greenish pink to purplish flowers which are borne in clusters at the stem tip and are often mixed among small greenish bulblets. Wild garlic can be quite persistent in lawns, because pre-emergent herbicides have little to no effect in stopping this plant. However, a properly applied post-emergent will bring these under control. Lawn 360 is the answer to problem weeds. Contact us if we can help you!
