Houndstonge seeds are easily transported on our clothes, shoes, and animal companions. Remember not to 'Pick and Flick'; dispose any seeds you find into a trash recepticle.
Houndstongue seeds are teardrop shaped and covered with tiny barbs that stick to everything!
Montana has many blue ribbon trout streams; always remember to clean your gear both before you enter and after you leave a recreation site. You don't want to help spread invasive plants or animals!
The root of leafy spurge can grow to depths of up to 25 feet! This allows it a huge competative advantage over native grasses and forbs.
