Galinsoga quadriradiata

Galinsoga quadriradiata

Synonym(s) Galinsoga ciliata
Common name shaggy soldier; hairy galinsoga
Family asteraceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers white/yellow

A relatively new weed in our garden - I don't remember it appearing at all until a few years ago, but boy, it has caught up to its competitors quickly! This one grows most strongly in our vegetable garden (it likes high-fertility soil), where it grows rapidly from seedling to blooming size. There are always a few hiding away, no doubt dropping seeds by the thousands - so I guess I'm stuck with it. At least it's easy to pull up.

This is a weed in our garden
