Cutleaf Evening Primrose
is a herbaceous weed that is a challenging weed to control in the corn and cotton fields across the southeast. It is Roundup resistant and the seeds can lay dormant in the soil for up to 20 years. It is loaded with nutrition, high in crude protein and highly digestible in its early forms.
It is foraged and eaten by humans as well as my goats according to "Foraging Texas"
It grows as a rosette form in the winter then grows stems in the spring. It is very interesting watching the transformation in my pastures. Pictures below are from my pasture. The first rosette form picture was taken in October and the second picture with stem and flower was taken last week of April.
