Marsh Parsley

We love helping identify issues! A gentleman brought this weed in today and his fear was that he was dealing with stickers. Luckily, we were able to tell curb his fears and let him know that this was in fact marsh parsley. You can identify it by its carrot seedling-like appearance with its small finely dissected leaves. It also has small spherical seed heads that will eventually turn into tiny white flowers. So we can see how it could be confused with stickers. This weed thrives in wet soil from mid-spring to mid-fall. You can control marsh parsley by applying pre-emergents in the fall, but if you get some breakthrough weeds, don’t worry, you can get rid of them with a little broad-leaf herbicide. Hope this helps and if you need help identifying marsh parsley, let us know!
