Farmers exert efforts to eradicate this weed from their property, but eventually they find them again, so keep their farms in check.
A single stalk with lots of branch stalks producing the flowers
Another photo to show the single stalk or branch with profuse flowers, which will eventually become seeds.
Above is an expanse of a hilly farm fully covered by this weed.
In February the flowers are already dried and the seeds are already starting to disperse. Burning the vegetation might not be an easy alternative as the vegetative plant parts remain green.
Umbels of dried seeds ready to disperse with the aid of the wind.
Some of my butterfly enthusiast friends say they love this weed because they see butterflies fleeting on the flowers. However, i disagree as there are many worthwhile and lovelier flowers that are more agreeable with the butterflies. In our case in the property, I seldom see butterflies and bees in these flowers. Maybe with high availability of alternatives, they also would not visit these flowers often. That is my current explanation on this matter, however I will still make a lot of observations from other places before i conclude of my theory.
