It’s more of a Texas thing. I had them on Lindale, none here. They make a big root that gets bigger with each year. Frost kills the plant, but not the root. They get the size of a watermelon. The root will sting you too.I've definitely gone down this rabbit hole !!! It is fun to learn stuff.
That bull nettle looks nasty! Glad I don't see it here (so far).
I should but I’ve got a stock stick and I’m not that coordinated to carry and use both 🤣. Strangely enough I do remember where I’ve seen most of them. I can and have at times go back with the UTV an a load of tools. I have thought about tagging them with surveyors tape - but I don’t know the good, bad or ugly of the plants until I get on the computer.Identifying and knowing the plants on your property sure helps. You are learning what is good and what is bad. You could carry a sharp hoe with you and chop plants off at ground level.
I’ve gone around pulling up some of the toxic plants on my place. It has made a difference.
