It may be a weed, but it made for a striking landscape


unusual to see so much henbit this early in the season. The annual weed usually matures from April through June, but because of warm temperatures it’s already flowering. Roberts said he suspects farmers will be killing off the weed soon before corn and beans are planted. For those who haven’t seen the purple landscape, they might want to hurry—henbit probably won’t last long once producers begin applying herbicides.
