Herbaceous plant of the parsley family

The plants accessed from this page are generally typical inhabitants of open areas, abandoned farmland, roadsides, railway right-of-ways and old fields. Many of the late summer plants belong to the Aster family. If you look closely at the plants in an old field, you may be surprised at the large variety of plants that can be found.

To look at some of these colonizing species, go back to the "Plants of Southern Ontario: Fields and Forests" page.

Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
