Smooth hawksbeard (CREPIS CAPILARIS)

Winters well, and is known as an annual or biennial plant. The smooth hawksbeard is found mainly in cultivated green areas. It can also be seen by roads and in ruderal areas. It is most concentrated in southern Poland, and distributed more loosely across all of Poland, excluding north-eastern areas. It develops well in clay soils that are rich in nutrients. The average height of a single plant can be between 20 and 100 centimetres. The blossoming period is between June and October. The weed has a stem that branches out heavily, and in its lower parts one can sometimes see red colouring.

The smooth hawksbeard, as many weed species, can be controlled by herbicides. This means that in order to effectively control this plant, spray treatments are an effective and required solution.
