Identifying Weeds: Pictures of Weeds

Having trouble identifying weeds in your garden? The pictures of weeds below include many of the most common annual, biennial and perennial types of weeds.

Identify Weeds: Annuals

Annual garden weeds sprout and die within a single year, although as many as three generations can result from one annual weed in a single season. They are the easiest to fight since pulling them as soon as they sprout means they won’t go to seed.

Following are several of the most common…

Identify Weeds: Perennials

Long-living perennials are by far the hardest to get rid of. Not only do they reproduce from seed like annuals and biennials, but they can also grow back from their roots and stems.
