Q

How can I get rid of Bur Buttercup? We have tried poisons over the past few years with little result. This year we tried a pre-emergent with little to no results. What can we do do get rid of them?

Answer(s)

A

I'm sending you a link to the range plants of Utah and specifically the fact sheet on bur buttercup. Click on http://extension.usu.edu/rangeplants/htm/bur-buttercup/ .

This is a winter annual, which means the seeds germinate in late fall and overwinter and really kick off growth in the spring. 

At the bottom of the page, there are recommendations for managing bur buttercup.
