Creeping bellflower has been popping up around Inglewood yards. While it looks pretty, it is an aggressive invader in natural plant communities. It can survive droughts and survive in a wide range of light conditions. This plant’s thick creeping roots can travel under fences, lawns and concrete, making it very difficult to control. This plant is also resistant to many chemicals.

Each plant can produce 3000 seeds and can quickly plague entire blocks and neighbourhoods.

To control the spread, it is essential to manually remove the entire root, up to a foot down as soon as the plants are spotted. You can be fined by the City between $250 to $1000 if found in your yard. Please share this information with your neighbors and help control this infestation!
