They call it Devil Weed

A neighbor from down the street dropped by for a visit to see what we were doing to the old place. When he spotted these bushes growing in the lawn, he scorned. “I see you got some devil weed.”

He expained that’s what his wife calls it because she can’t get rid of it. I guess its the Northwest version of Kudzu.

Anyone know what its real name is? Anyone want to tell me how to exorcize it?

  1. It is furry with a silver tint? It could be Stachys byzantina (Lambs Ears). I think we had some of that too… I like them.
