Puncture Vine

Puncturvine and Longspine Sandbur

These spiny invaders are rapidly spreading in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys, negatively impacting agricultural land. Both species prefer sandy or well-drained soils and readily invade disturbed ground.

Stiff spines on the fruit readily attach to footwear, clothing, animals, tires, machinery and supplies.
