Common Bugloss

Anchusa officinalis

Common bugloss is a perennial herb that can flower its first year but typically starts out as a basal rosette of leaves. It has a deep taproot and can reach 1 to 2 feet tall. The entire plant is covered in coarse hairs.

Common bugloss can be found in the Kewa Meteor area of the Colville Reservation. It is a serious threat to hay production as it will cause baled hay to mold.
