Watch for this noxious weed early spring!
Hoary Cress commonly know as "whitetop", is a creeping perennial that is a member of the mustard family. The stems, in the rosette stage, may grow up to 2 inches in height and produce grayish-green leaves that are lance shaped. The leaves are alternate and 3/4 to 4 inches long. The upper leaves have two lobes that clasp the stem. The plant has numerous small, white flowers with four petals on stalks radiating from a stem. The plants emerge in early spring with stems emerging from the center of each rosette in late April. Whitetop flowers from May to June and plants set seed by mid-summer. Habitats for whitetop include: fields, waste places, meadows, pastures, croplands and along roadsides. The key to effective control is prevention. Beyond prevention, the key is early detection when infestations are small, and aggressive management. It is recommended to apply herbicide at the early bud growth stage or "broccoli" growth stage.
