Also called, mare’s tail, horseweed is a warm season erect annual weed. It is often found in cultivated areas, pastures, road sides and waste sites.
First leaves are in a rosette. It has a stem with frequent alternate and sessile leaves. Horseweed generally bolts in April/May, flowers in July and sets and disperse seed from August to October. Control of horseweed is more effective when plants are in the rosette stage or less than 2 inches tall.
