The weeds are blossoming
February 5, 2015
According to the groundhog’s prediction, we have another 6 weeks of winter. And, though spring is far away, the invasive weed, spurge laurel, has started blooming.
Spurge laurel is a large, invasive weed that grows in clumps that are 3 to 5 feet tall. Its blossoms are yellow-green and have a bitter scent.
The Bureau of Environmental Services recommends to remove the weed by completely digging it up, down to roots, to limit re-growth. Spurge laurel is toxic, so take precautions to stay safe and avoid a nasty rash.
