Florida Pusley Control

     Florida pusley (Rhicardia Scabra)- a Florida native- is an aggressive plant known to take over areas thinned from irrigation or weakened by bug infestations or fungus problems. With hairy stems, leaves and white flowers (which purple as the plant ages), Florida pusley is easily spotted by its white, hoary appearance.

     Small infestations can be easily eradicated by hand-weeding, whereas large infestations, or areas near large infestations, will most often require herbicides (many plants, when actively germinating, will require herbicides).
