Hello.
I have lived at the same address for 5 years now and just today I noticed for the first time these purple and red plants coming up through my front lawn...any idea what they are? Never seen them before!
Thanks, Stephanie.

Some hawkweeds are native, others are invasive. You may want to check your county's web site to see if these should be discouraged or encouraged. I, personally, love walk-ons but if they are on the invasive list I do my best to pull them before they go to seed (sometimes I will enjoy the flowers first).

I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
