Whas Dis?
« on: May 16, 2010, 07:10:21 PM »
  Got a new weed in the yard. What is it?

I was born about 100 years too early, or to late.

The leaves look a lot like cilantro, but I'm sure that's probably not what it is.

Looks to me like a Columbine flower.

Yup, shawn's got it, that is columbine.

A biennial, it spreads by seeds so will show up in new spots occasionally.  And it isn't a weed, you can buy it at the store. 

I suppose you can buy black-eye susans and shasta daisies too, and those have turned into weeds by me...

So funny that a plant that's "too easy" to grow is a weed!

I've been babying my California native columbines, but the slugs love them almost as much as I do.

I have planted many Columbines around the yard. For what ever reason most have died out but now I have them coming up everywhere, the seeds. Its too bad teh bees cant use them.
