Question of the Week: Henbit

Last week the question was:  Here is another winter weed, this time growing out of a crack in a brick wall four feet off the ground.  What is it?

This is henbit growing out of this crack.  One characteristic that frequently makes a plant successful is the ability to survive in adverse growing conditions.  It doesn’t get much more adverse than a crack in a brick wall.  Henbit is a weed that we see in our winter crops like wheat, oats, and canola/rapeseed.  If left uncontrolled, they grow pretty rapidly as the weather warms up and can choke out the winter crops.

 

Here is this week’s question:  What bird did this feather com from?
