  • Posted by Bonehead (Planet Earth - Zone 8b) on Sep 17, 2014 11:24 AM concerning plant:
    Class C noxious weed in Washington, found mostly in the drier eastern side of the state, invading pastures and rangeland. Seeds are dispersed by wind and one plant can produce 14,000 seeds. When in bloom on the hillsides, it absolutely reeks. While it is a good filler for bouquets, there are better choices with less impact on our native habitat.
