Tansy Ragwort is rapidly invading our roadsides and trails. The first year it can be seen as a charming rosette and the second year it sets flowers and grows up to a meter tall.
Please help eradicate this toxic interloper by yanking it out wherever you see it (it pulls out easily). It is particularly important if you find it in small patches where it can easily be controlled. It is advisable to wear gloves for protection if doing large areas. If it has already gone to flower or seed, just deadhead the plants before pulling them out and dispose of the seeds by bagging or burning them. If you spot plants infested with black striped caterpillars, this is a good thing. Disperse the caterpillars to new host plants as they are plant specific defoliators.
