It is unclear as to whether Herb Robert geranium is native to North America or if it was delivered here by settlers and colonizers. Either way, the plant is now widely spread across the Northwest and B.C. but present only lightly down into California. The rapid spread and ease of establishment are a threat to the local flora.

You can also mow the plants if you can get to them before they flower and seed. It is best to send the weeds to the county composting facility, as most home compost units do not get hot enough to kill seeds. Use organic mulch to control any seedlings and prevent germination.

What is Herb Robert?

Invasive weeds form a common battlefield for the gardener. Herb Robert is in the geranium family and produces the characteristic crane-shaped seed pod that all members of the family bear. The seeds eject forcefully from the pod and can travel up to 20 feet (6 m.) away from the plant, making it a virtual nuisance. The seeds are not the only problem because Herb Robert growing conditions are flexible such that the weed is adaptable to most soil and site conditions.

The weed is actually quite pretty with lacy, deeply defined leaves and pleasant 5-petaled pink flowers. The flower becomes a beak-like pod filled with many tiny black seeds. It grows low to the ground and may be found hiding under desired plants. In forests, it forms dense mats of interlocking leaves and rosette plants. The leaves and stems are covered with sticky hairs that give off a strange smell, leading to the name Stinky Bob.

Herb Robert Identification

Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum) has an even more colorful name, Stinky Bob. What is Herb Robert? It is an attractive herb that was once sold in nurseries as an ornamental plant and used as a medicinal in simpler times. However, Herb Robert geranium is now a Class B noxious herb in Washington and Oregon. It has the ability to spread and take over native habitat quickly and prolifically. Fortunately, Herb Robert control is easy and non-toxic, although a bit tedious and time consuming. This article goes over Herb Robert identification so you can stop the spread of this potentially damaging plant.

There are a lot of seeds around right now. I’m shelling dry beans from the garden, the kids come running in with “stick tights” stuck tight over their shirts and shoes, turkeys are running around eating up the acorns, and milkweed seeds are blowing from alongside the pond. Seeds do get around. They’re supposed to, that’s their job – to get as far away from the parent plant as they can and set up shop to grow and reproduce. Seed dispersal is a plant’s one big shot at horizontal movement.

These maple samaras (a.k.a. helicopter seeds) are in abundance now. They are the twins of the seed world, clustered together on the ends of branches, waiting for the right time to take flight. Once airborne they twirl either clockwise or counterclockwise with precision, as the angled “wing” weighted on the top side and papery on the bottom side give a lesson in perfect physics.

These ash seeds are also samaras, but in a different style. They have a single straight wing and the seed is much smaller and less heavy. The seeds all hope to land in a spot just right for germination. Most don’t. And then even those seeds that do germinate never make it to maturity. But trees play the long game – sending thousands of seeds out year after year at great energy expenditure with pretty incredible success.

The Jamaican strain refers to the indigenous varieties of cannabis (or landraces) that grow natively in this region of the world. Because of Jamaica’s latitude and climate, these varieties tend to be sativa in structure and effect.

Jamaican Pearl is a sweetly potent outdoor sativa strain from Dutch breeder Sensi Seeds whose presence will bring a taste of the Caribbean to cannabis consumers. Jamaica is home to sativas of astounding quality and potency, selectively bred for countless generations. This strain, a genetic cross between Marley’s Collie and Early Pearl, provides a nice breezy cerebral sensation with tropical flavors.

3. Jamaican Pearl

Jamaican Lion is a high-CBD sativa strain with mildly psychoactive effects that stimulate creativity and focus without the loss of functionality. Its rich genetic background combines Mountain Lion — a Rockbud and Lionheart cross — with a Jamaican sativa known as Yarders. Shadrock, Jamaican Lion’s creator, first brought the strain to California in 2007, where it was distributed to patients by Harborside. Ushered in by a sweet herbal aroma, Jamaican Lion induces mild psychoactivity that carries through despite its low THC content. Sensory perception sharpens as bad moods dull in clear-headed sensations that can be described as simultaneously uplifting and calming. Few strains compare to Jamaican Lion as it eases pain, anxiety, and inflammation without intoxication or mental cloudiness. Its CBD content is highest around week 9 of flowering, but if you’re looking for more of a 1:1 ratio of CBD and THC, Shadrock recommends harvesting at week 8 instead.
