Please call the Extension Office by 10:00 am on May 16th to let us know that you are coming (889-8056). Weed of the Week: Thistle This week's "Weed of the Week" is the Plumeless Thistle. The plumeless this- tle is a member of the sunflower family (Asteracea). It is an economically impor- tant weed as it reduces the productivity of pastures by competing with desirable species. We often find large colonies of this species in areas that are overgrazed or in disturbed sites. The Plumeless Thistle is often referred to as the "Canadian Thistle" but this name is incorrect. The true Canadian Thistle is a perennial that comes back in the same spot every year. It also has underground stems (rhizomes) like Johnsongrass that make control difficult. Plumeless thistles spread by seeds. The average plant will produce approxi- mately 35 to 60 flowers and each flower will contain 50 to 80 seeds. Each seeds is carried by a pappus (the white feathery structure) in the wind. Seeds can travel up to 300 feet from the mother plant with a gentle breeze. The Plumeless Thistle is a biennial - seeds sprout and the plant spreads on the ground like a plate (rosette) in year one, and the plant bolts upward (grows a stem) in year two. Biennials (like the plumeless thistle) are best controlled when they are in the rosette stage. Now is an excellent time to spray thistles! Many herbi- cide formulations that will control this species including: Cimmaron Plus, 2,4-D, 2,4-D + Banvel, Banvel, Grazon, Grazon Next, Milestone, and Crossbow. For more information concerning weed control, please contact the Extension Office. Herbicides listed are for educational purposes only - others formulation may be equally effective. The Russell County Extension Unit -- Cornelia Estep, Scott Jessee, Donna Meade and Bill Worrell -- is located on 135 Highlands Drive, Lebanon, VA.
