It’s blooming time again for the invasive Orange Hawkweed plant that is spreading across the Kenai Peninsula changing habitats in its wake. This weed also has a yellow species that is found here on the Kenai and spreading quickly like it’s orange counterpart. You can learn more about this Noxious Weed from the Cooperative Extension Service free publication entitled “Orange Hawkweed.” Help to stop it’s spread by learning these plants biology and habits.
