Color Noxious Weeds

A plant is called a noxious weed when it may injure public health, agriculture, recreation, wildlife, or property.  Noxious weeds usually spread rapidly, reproduce in high numbers, and crowd out native plants.  Noxious weeds also tend to be very difficult to control. 

Color Noxious Weeds are weeds you can color! Each coloring page includes a noxious weed drawing and facts about why the plant is considered a noxious weed.

Select the noxious weed(s) from the pictures below to see a full-size page. Print the noxious weed page(s) you would like to color, and enjoy!
