Garlic Mustard

Garlic Mustard is a species native to Europe and Asia originally introduced to North America as a medicinal and culinary herb. Garlic Mustard is very invasive to our environment and can be destructive to native biodiversity and habitat.

Impacts of Garlic Mustard

Infestation can lead to reduced native vegetation including woodland orchids such as yellow lady slippers. It causes negative long term effects in soil and reduces available plants for wildlife such as deer, birds and insects. Therefore, it is listed as a prohibited noxious weed in the Alberta Weed Control Act.

Garlic Mustard Pulls

The City of Edmonton will organize Garlic Mustard pulls in Mill Creek in Summer 2019. Please check back for dates.
