Excerpt from Invasive Species Council of BC Ebulletin, October 2012

Hawkweeds (Hieracium spp.) are perennial plants with 14 non-native species recorded in BC, and are difficult to identify among the 8 native hawkweed species. One of the 14 non-native species, orange hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum) is currently the only hawkweed considered regionally noxious under the Weed Control Act.

Most hawkweeds have yellow flowers. Invasive hawkweeds are found throughout most forest regions and regional districts in British Columbia. The regional districts east of the Rocky Mountains, Northern Rockies, and Peace River Regional Districts only have a few known invasive hawkweed sites and efforts to prevent further establishment and spread are actively underway. Orange hawkweed is regionally noxious in the East Kootenay, Central Kootenay, Columbia-Shuswap, Thompson-Nicola, Bulkley Nechako, and Cariboo Regional Districts
