plant with red veins, friend or foe?

kritrkz(z5 IN)August 7, 2005

We have a man made pond that has about 4' of bank before reaching the shore line & there are a whole bunch of these plant coming up. It's a shrub looking plant with a stem that's red & red goes into veins in leaves which are green. The edge of leaves are zagged. I'm not sure if I should leave them be or pull them up. I've done web searches & cannot find it.

Could be Rattlesnakeweed, Hieracium venosum, a native member of the Hawkweed Family. However, I have not seen those with jagged leaves, but observed some with coarse hairy edges. It is unclear if it is considered a noxious weed, as are some of the introduced species of Heiracium. I have it in my garden and after a number of years, it has not been invasive.
Check the images on the link and see if that is the plant you have.

I'm not sure if you can view from here as I'm not real 'computer savvy' as to how to transfer a picture onto this board, but I took a picture of one of these bigger plants last night.

You are telling my computer to look at my E drive. You need either to put the picture in this forum, or you need to have an internet "album" where it can be posted.

That picture looks like a type of shrub - can you provide some more description about where this is growing and the general characteristics, kisinzcemm?
