Spotted Spurge Identification and Spotted Spurge Management

Spotted Spurge finds weak spots in your landscape and starts to take off. Each Spotted Spurge plant can produce thousands of seeds, which is how it spreads so quickly. Spotted Spurge is a spring and summer annual weed that thrives in the hot Austin, Texas climate. Seeds fall in late summer and are capable of wintering and sprouting in early spring the following year. Spotted Spurge start to sprout and produce seeds 5 weeks after germination. 

Spotted spurge grows in poor, compacted soil. Killing spurge is difficult, and keeping it from growing back is more difficult. The root of the plant is very long, and the seeds are very resilient. This weed will grow back if the roots are not killed completely, or if there are left-over seeds. Pulling spurge usually only takes care of the plant above ground. In order to kill it completely you have to kill the root system.
