Puncturevine sticks it to you

It’s here, puncturevine, also known as goatheads, has already begun to germinate around Chelan County. You can find it on gravel driveways, parking areas, hard-packed or sandy soil, vacant lots and even in your yard or garden.

Puncturevine is low growing with small oval leaves, yellow flowers and stems growing outward along the ground as long as 3 feet. Very soon after the flowers open, sharp-spined fruits appear, starting out green and drying to gray as the fruit splits into the characteristic goathead-shaped sections.
