Plants ID


Hello Folks,

I am totally new to the gardening world. I have a large property with plants spread throughout a large area, but I need help identifying some of them.

Firstly, that seems to be infamous and famigerate weed:






I believe that there are more than one weed variety. But I am at loss with the following plants:

1)







2)





Thanks

Thanks for your inputs! The photos were taking in Columbus, OH.

At first, I believe that the first one was weed.

Those 3 weeks are Chickweed, Burdock, and Canada Thistle.

2-4D will kill all of them. However, you'll need more than one application, and they're going to fight tooth & nail.

The Canada Thistle is actually a "biennial." It spreads out low to the ground (like in the picture) one year, than grows tall the next year. The year in which they are more easily killed is when they grow low to the ground.

Thanks for the clarification!

Would you say that they are all noxious and invasive and thus should be eliminated?

Yes, absolutely.

If you're looking to kill all ground cover, use RoundUp (RoundUp is the original 'brand name' but the chemical that does the killing is "glyphosate"). If you're just wanting to kill broadleaf weeds, use a weed killer with 2-4D.
