Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral altagardener On Dec 29, 2008, altagardener from Calgary, AB (Zone 3b) wrote:

Referring to the previous note... Yes, but Astragalus pectinatus is actually a native species, that occurs on the prairies (often in alkaline soils) from Alberta to southern Manitoba and south to Montana, Utah, Colorado and Kansas (viz. E. H. Moss and J. G. Packer, Flora of Alberta). The notion of including native species on the "noxious weed list" is a questionable one.

This is a federally prohibited noxious weed in Canada.
