Did you know that Purple Deadnettle, Hairy Bittercress, Wintercress, chickweed and other similar winter annuals could be germinating in your lawn as you are reading this? Winter annuals are weeds that germinate and grow when sunlight lessens and temperatures cool down throughout the fall and winter and into the spring months.
You may have noticed them growing across lawns, taking over mulch beds, or on the edges of driveways. These weeds can grow anywhere, but they prefer areas with thinning turf, typically due to summer damage or where there is a lot of shade. If turf and soils are disturbed during the fall when winter annuals are germinating, you are likely to see these weeds come in winter and spring.
