WANTED – DEAD

Noxious weeds are prioritized into three categories:

“A” designated weed – a weed of known economic importance which occurs in the county in small enough infestations to make eradication/containment possible; or is not known to occur, but its presence in neighboring counties make future occurrence in Coos County seem imminent.

“B” designated weed – a weed of economic importance which is abundant in parts of the county, but which may have limited distribution in some areas. 

“T” designated weed – Species from either the A or B lists that is Targeted (T) to be the focus for prevention and control within the county. Actions against these species will be a priority.

Weed of the Month

Garlic Mustard, Alliaria petiolate, an invasive non-native biennial herb that spreads by seed. 

How did it get here?

Introduced from Europe originally as a food plant. Although edible for people, it is not eaten by local wildlife or insects. In Oregon, north Willamette Valley is the epicenter of garlic mustard and our neighbors to the north- Lane and to the south-Curry (along the Rogue River), have known populations.

Why is it a problem?

Plant stands can produce more than 62,000 seeds per square meter, can out compete local flora and change the structure of plant communities on the forest floor. Making this species is a serious concern.

How to Identify?

Biennial or winter annual herb

Generally grows 2-3 (up to 6) feet tall

Rosettes mid summer – overwinters- then bolts the following spring

Basil leaves: dark green, kidney to scalloped shaped

Stem leaves: alternate, sharply toothed and triangular

Bloom time April – June

Flowers: showy four white petals

Distinct garlic odor when crushed

What to do? Dig-up small patches of plants before flowering but be sure to remove as much of the root as possible, fragments can easily resprout. However, hand pulling is impractical once garlic mustard is established. Or if you see this plant in our area, please contact Coos County EDRR!
