Shepherd's Purse
 

 

Shepherd's Purse is a plant that seems able to complete its cycle ... germination, growth, flowering and setting seed ... in days. At the tip will usually be found a cluster of tiny, white crucifer (cross-shaped) flowers which will later form flat, triangular seed-pods.

Grows readily on cultivated and disturbed ground, a common weed familiar to gardeners everywhere. In flower throughout the year.
