Invasive? How do I get rid of it?

Marion County Oregon weeds invasive species shiny geranium

1 Response

This is shiny geranium, Geranium lucidum.

Several years ago, this response was sens to you:
"This is Geranium lucidum, Shiny Geranium. It is an introduced species that is classified as a "type B" weed. See the link below for more information.
https://www.oregon.gov/ODA/shared/Documents/Publications/Weeds/ShinyGeraniumProfile.pdf"

Unfortunately, that response lacked management information.
Because your previous inquiries mention pasture and/or woodland infestations, you should be able to obtain information from one of both of the following:

- Oregon Invasive Species Hotline, where you can report via phone or email: https://oregoninvasiveshotline.org/

- Small Farms Agent: Nick Andrews , who is located at the North Willamette Extension Center. His contact info is at https://extension.oregonstate.edu/people/nick-andrews.
