Introduced, Invasive, Noxious, Common, Native

Introduced Weeds – weeds that came from other parts of the globe with human intervention.

Native Weeds – weeds that were not introduced but existed in Arizona prior to American settlers

Invasive Weeds – weeds that will spread and overtake landscape

Noxious Weeds – unpleasant, aggressive, and harmful.

Native weeds to Arizona are weeds that existed in Arizona prior to human civilization. Weeds like the saltbush, carelessweed, desertholly, and povertyweed are all native. As most of Phoenix is dry desert, the list of known native weeds is very limited.

Introduced weeds generate most of the problematic weeds in Arizona today. Humans have created this mess of weeds we now battle. From English nutsedge to our favorite lawn covering bermuda grass. None of these plants are native to Arizona. Some of these plants were introduced by accident. Others were intentionally introduced. Because most of these plants don’t have natural predators they become invasive and noxious weeds. As homeowners add an abundance of water to what was once a dry desert, these plants suck up water and beat out the native competition.

The iconic Tumbleweed of Arizona is not native! The most common tumbleweed is the Russian Thistle (Kali tragus), which was introduced to Arizona via seeds found in agriculture shipments of flaxseed. That’s right, our common Phoenix Tumbleweed is from Russia.
