Pest Details

Coast Fiddleneck
Coast Fiddleneck

Origin:

Coast fiddleneck is native to Oregon and California.

Biology:

A winter annual – seeds germinate from November through early spring, with plants maturing in early summer and dying once hot weather arrives.

Identification:

Most characteristic is the flower stalk, which is curled in the shape of the neck of a violin, giving this weed its common name. Flowers are very small, orange, and arranged in rows along the sides of the terminal stems. Leaves are 1 to 4 inches long, arranged alternately along the stems, and lance shaped and very hairy and bristly to the touch.

Characteristicts Important to Control:

May grow densely in almost any soil condition. Livestock feeding on fiddleneck in the field or as a contaminant in hay may suffer liver poisoning, and a condition called “walking disease” in horses.
