Hoary Cress – Be vigilant with this thug!

Hoary cress – Lepidium Draba is just coming into flower on the site. Notifiable in Australia in the same way that Japanese Knotweed is here; it needs to be bagged and binned – not composted.  If allowed to flower, each head can produce up to 5,000 viable seeds!  Any piece of root left in the ground will multiply too.
