Bugloss - A Pretty, but Noxious Weed

Common Bugloss was originally found growing near Mead, WA where I live. It has spread throughout most of north Spokane County with limited distribution in the south portions of the county. It invades pastures and rangelands and is a concern to alfalfa production because the succulent leaves and stalks mold the hay once it is baled.
