Bindii Weed Control in Your Lawn
Bindii - also called Jo-Jo Weed or Onehunga - is a low-growing, spreading, annual weed. Fern-like leaves (similar to carrot leaves) are attached to stems which grow from the centre in a rosette form. Plants generally grow 4 cm in diameter and are covered in fine hairs.
Flowers are very small (3mm) and greenish-yellow. Flowers are produced in Autumn and Winter and mature into seeds in Spring and Summer. Seeds are light-brown, flattened and winged seeds with one especially long spine on the end - capable of piercing the skin. Seeds drop from the plant in mid-summer and are further spread by foot traffic or on the fur of animals.
Best Time of Year to Control Bindii
As seeds are produced in Spring and Summer, the best time for control is late Autumn, Winter and early Spring, prior to the weed setting seed.
