Tussilago farfara is sometimes a troublesome weed on heavy, damp land. (It is common on railway embankments.) The yellow, daisy-like flowers appear in early spring before the smoth, light green leaves. The best means of eradicating where this weed is not rampant is to dig up the roots, otherwise give a heavy dressing of sodium chlorate weedkiller. The winter heliotrope, formerly known as Tussilago fragrans, is described under PETASITES FRAGRANS.
