Broadleaf Weed – Narrowleaf Cudweed

(Gnaphalium falcatum)

Narrowleaf Cudweed also referred to as Narrowleaf Purple Everlasting – can be either an annual or a biennial broadleaf weed. Gnaphalium falcatum is often found growing in warmer climates in low maintenance turfs and fields. Narrowleaf Cudweed can be found throughout much of the southern United States and in some southwestern states.

Identifying Narrowleaf Cudweed -

Narrowleaf Cudweed can be identified as an annual or biennial with a basal rosette of leaves. This weed’s stems and leaves are covered with dense, white hairs (on both front and back) that give rise to broad leaves near the tip of the plant. Reproduction is by seed.

Narrowleaf Cudweed Control -

Narrowleaf Cudweed has been known to invade lawns and gardens and typically is not affected by basic cultural weed control methods, such as proper mowing habits or manual removal. Professionally selected and applied herbicides – based on your specific climate and geography – are the most effective method for control.
