Giant hogweed’s 2-foot-wide umbrella-shaped clusters of tiny white flowers are starting to appear.

If you’ve made it outside on a recent sunny day, you’ve probably noticed the abundance of flowers blooming in gardens, parks, forests, and throughout King County right now. Unfortunately, the noxious weeds are out there, too—many of them bolting, flowering, and even going to seed already.

Below are some of the top regulated noxious weeds to keep an eye out for this month. Please let us know if you see one of these high-priority invasive plants, so we can make sure they’re controlled or eradicated in time! Report locations and share photos with us easily on our new and improved Report a Weed online form.
