How do I remove Lesser Celandine in my yard?


I have an outbreak of Lesser Celandine in my yard. I see it’s a pretty nasty invasive species. Do you have any advice on removal?

Thanks for your question and thoughtful observation of this tricky invasive. Check out the Cooperative Extension’s Bulletin: Maine Invasive Plants – Lesser Celandine for an overview of this invasive, including removal advice and follow up contacts if you need more information, especially concerning control methods over a large area.

Additionally, you may want to refer to this Lesser Celandine fact sheet too.

The Maine Natural Areas Program includes it on the list of  Advisory List of Invasive Plants, which may be of interest to you.
