Cindy Geissler First to Receive $100 REWARD for Report of Yellow Toadflax
Cindy Geissler is the first person to recieve a reward under PCWP’s new program that encourages citizens to be on the look-out for invasive plant species. For reporting a new infestation of yellow toadflax, Geissler is the first to grab a check for $100! Yellow toadflax is Dalmatian toadflax’s evil cousin. Unlike the Dalmatian species, yellow toadflax is really difficult to spot unless it is in bloom. While the flowers are similar, Dalmatian toadflax is easily recognized any time of the year via its broader heart-shaped waxy leaves. Yellow toadflax leaves are long and narrow… pretty much nondescript. Both species are difficult to eliminate if allowed to establish in an area. Early Detection is vital for successfully erradicating these species.
