Lesser Celandine is now very evident in southern Ohio. Blooms have not yet appeared; however, this conspicuous life-cycle stage is just around the corner. Be on the lookout for this highly-invasive non-native weed and take steps to eradicate it from Ohio forests and landscapes.

Lesser Celandine is on the Rise

Lesser Celandine plants are starting to rise in southern Ohio. This non-native is known as a "spring ephemeral" owing to the time of year when the short-lived plants and flowers are present. The majority of this weed's hide-and-seek life-cycle is spent hidden from view as underground tubers.
