We had a massive drought last year and now there are very weird weeds taking over my track, seem resistant to spray. We have a lot of Vervain growing but I don't think anything eats it by choice and it doesn't appear to be toxic.

There are a couple of plants I can't tell. One looks like a tall thin ragwort relative or a daisy, the other is small woody bush that sheep will nibble on if pushed.

Trying to find what they are and if they are poisonous. Many thanks if you can help. I haven't gotten out my poisonous plant CD yet but will have another go on a different computer as mine wouldn't open the disc. Grrrr!

Kind Regards
Judy

Ragwort or daisy? Have found one of these away from the horses and am letting it flower to see what colour it is.

The wee bush that can get up to knee height.

Judy, "close up young plant" and the photo just before it are either Senecio jacobea (Ragwort) or else the closely related Tansy. I can't tell which because they both have similar leaves, but different blossom form. Senecio is a known poisonous plant (contains PA or pyrillozidine alkaloids, strong liver toxins similar to what's in Paterson's Curse)  and a listed noxious weed -- most principalities ask landowners to remove this plant as soon as it is seen.

The other photos do not contain enough information (blurry, too small, not in bloom, etc.) for me to identify.

Remember that none of our CD disks self-initiate or self-boot. They are all presented as one or more large .pdf documents that have been burned down onto the disk. You have to boot your Acrobat reader FIRST, then browse to the disk and to the particular .pdf file. --Dr. Deb

Awesome re how to open my CDs, thank you for the help there.

Oh dear re the Ragwort but once again thanks for your time for identifying this. I will try and photograph the other weed again. A friend is coming to help me pull weeds today so we might just get rid of that sucker.
Cheers Judy
