What is this weed in my garden? It is very prolific and is very woody, very difficult to pull once established.


  1. Bobby Unregistered says:

    Prickly sida. Because of it’s tap root and fiberous roots as well, one that size would be hard to pull. It is noted as one of the ten most troublesome weeds in southern ag crops.

    Prickly sida has a very close cousin named Arrowleaf sida so as always correction will be appreciated.
