The weed of the month for April is Herb Robert. This low-growing winter or spring annual or biennial has fern-like lacy green leaves that turn red as they mature or in high light exposure. Five-petalled pink flowers, seeds grow in elongated, pointed capsules. Stems are covered in fine, glandular hairs that exude a sticky, pungent-smelling substance giving the plant its nickname “stinky Bob.” Roots are shallow.
