Hello all, curious if anyone has dealt with Hedge parsley. This has been a "new find" in our area that may have always been here and we didn't realize what it was. I am curious if anyone does treatment for this plant and what advise you have for it. I am quite certain it is hedge parsley and not cow parsley, as it is in flower right now and that seems to be the biggest identifying factor.

 

Thanks!

We have some up north, though we haven't worked very hard on it yet.  Apparently treatment is similar to garlic mustard:  pull before seeds or try glyphosate or triclopyr sprays.  Our reports from volunteers are similar to garlic mustard too:  thick patches are harder to knock back (and an ebb-and-flow of dense and lighter years), and smaller ones may be "won" in a few years.

Thanks for the reply Katie; I assumed it would be a similar treatment from what I gathered. I take it it has not been seen as a large issue to have to act on treating it?

It's in a weird grey zone for us.  It's technically an EDR species in our region, but it also seems to be growing exclusively in road ROWs and not spreading into higher-quality areas.  We're encouraging removal.  We were hoping to have a better handle on our actions this year... but it's 2020.

Gotcha, thanks for the information. Yay for 2020! The area I have noticed it in seems to be random. Not necessarily specific to forest ground or field. But may have to try and start a treatment of some sort for it. 

 

Thanks again!
