Banish Spanish Heath

It looks like a native plant but Spanish Heath, Erica lusitanica, is an environmental weed. As you drive around you will see it flowering now and it is becoming more common on roadsides.

 

The seed is very fine so if you decide to pull some up make sure you catch the seed and don’t let is spread.
