The most common question we get: “What’s this weed?”
We love this question, but do ask that you provide us with a good, representative sample, or even a series of photographs of the weed you are concerned about. Samples that include flowers or fruit are often essential for positive identification. Photos should include both close-up, detailed and high-resolution pictures of the stem, nodes, flowers or fruits, as well as pictures taken further back to see the overall shape and size of the plant. You can drop the sample off at the WSU Extension Office or email us a photo. From there, we will begin the process to provide you with more information and resources about the plant of concern. Positive identification may take some time, so please be patient!
