Puncture Vine Control

Puncture vine (Tribulus terrestris) is one of the most annoying and destructive weeds in Utah. An invasive plant originally from the Mediterranean region, it produces the sharp four-pointed “goatheads” that stick in shoes and dog paws and puncture bicycle tires. It is a sprawling, prostrate plant that likes bare, open, sunny areas (such as roadsides). It grows rapidly in warm weather, producing small yellow flowers that turn into clusters of goatheads, as shown. Do yourself and your bicycling friends a favor and get rid of it wherever you can!
