The worst enemy of Arizona wildflowers is invasive species, especially stinknet

Earlier this week on The Show, we talked about wildflower season in Arizona, including what to look for and where to see the most beautiful varieties.

And although we may think that because the central part of the state is a desert, our typically dry conditions may be the worst enemy of wildflowers, that designation actually applies most to invasive species.

One of the worst is a winter annual growth called stinknet.

To learn about it, The Show spoke with Michael Chamberland of the Maricopa County Cooperative Extension.
