Weeds in the Desert Southwest

What is the Merriam-Webster definition of a weed?

A weed is any plant that is not valued where it is growing and is usually of vigorous growth; especially: one that tends to overgrow or choke out more desirable plants.

In other words, a plant that is growing where you don't want it.

Several weeds found in the desert Southwest are pictured on this page. They may help you identify what is growing in your landscape.

More pictures and control methods will be added soon.
