Carpet Burweed

Carpet Burweed (Soliva sessilis)

This hairy-stemmed low-growing (up to several centimeters) feathery plant with divided leaves carpets the ground and produces seeds with hazardous spines. On Salt Spring the infestation appears confined to Ruckle Park, but has spread to many locations on the BC coast.
