Weed Pollens


Weeds pollinate in the fall, with the exception of English Plantain which shows up in our area in late May or early June.  Ragweed is the most 'famous' weed as a cause of allergy symptoms.  These plants usually begin to pollinate in mid-August and continue until the first hard frost.  Here are some common weeds causing allergy problems in this area:

Lamb's Quarter
Marsh Elder
Mugwort
Pigweed
Plantain (English)
Ragweed
