Several of my yarrow plants have strange yellow stringy stuff growing all over the plants. It looks like very, very thin spaghetti. What is this stuff and how do I get rid of it?
What is this yellow stringy stuff growing on my yarrow?
Do you have a picture? Can't imagine. I have yarrow and do not have that.
Could be dodder which is a parasitic plant that you'd want to get rid of...but hard to say for sure without a picture. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher%5Bcommon%5D=&searcher%5Bfamily%5D=&searcher%5Bgenus%5D=cuscuta&searcher%5Bspecies%5D=&searcher%5Bcultivar%5D=&searcher%5Bhybridizer%5D=&searcher%5Bgrex%5D=&search_prefs%5Bblank_cultivar%5D=&search_prefs%5Bsort_by%5D=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search
That is the strangest thing I have ever seen. No kidding. Weird. How DO you get rid of it?
It was dodder after all. I thought maybe I could just be very diligent in pulling it all out before it went to seed. That is impossible, so I finally dug up all the plants, sprayed the area with Round Up and waited a year. I have now replanted in that spot and it is dodder free. Thanks for the help.
