SUPERPOWER

Tough to kill! Just when you think you’ve controlled narrow-leaved hawk’s beard, it flushes again, later in the season like a villain with the power of regeneration.

DESCRIPTION

A winter annual, narrow-leaved hawk’s beard can be tough to identify at the rosette stage because it closely resembles dandelion, sow thistle, stinkweed and Canada thistle. The population tends to grow in wet years, but this villain is found across the Prairies.
