Winter Annual Weeds
Winter annual weeds have been a huge eyesore this spring. The worst offenders in our area are Hairy Bittercress, Chickweed, Henbit and Purple Deadnettle. They all germinated late last fall so there was no good chemical preventative. The combination of an overly wet, relatively mild fall and winter and a colder than normal March/early April gave these pesky weeds a big head start on the turf.
