Lesser celandine is an invasive early-emerging flowering plant that spreads aggressively along stream sides and similar wet areas. It’s dense coverage can impede the growth of other spring ephemerals. In this all-day workshop, we will discuss this plant’s invasive origins, biology, and best treatment methods. We will also introduce and practice with iMapInvasives, a statewide database and reporting tool for invasive plants, animals and insects.
In the afternoon we will travel to the Thorn Preserve at 55 John Joy Road in Woodstock to practice identifying lesser celandine in the field, and to discuss treatment strategies for this problematic pest.
