Bishop’s Weed……………….. friend or foe???

Bishop’s weed (aka goutweed, snow-on-the-mountain, ground elder, etc.) can take over your garden if you are not careful.  While the perennial plant itself looks fairly attractive, the challenge lies in it’s invasive growing nature.

The plant will quickly spread into just about any open soil area not bound by pavement on all four sides!!  This ground cover plant will spread, and spread, and spread………..

Bishop’s weed is nearly unstoppable!!

 

Bishop’s weed is considered a noxious weed in many states.  Just something to consider when deciding whether or not to offer a few of your Bishop’s weed plant’s to a neighbor or family member.  A non-selective herbicide (glyphosate) may be used to control the plant, but multiple targeted applications over several growing seasons may be required.
