1. Brazilian elodea is designated for control throughout King County except in Lake Washington, Lake Sammamish, Lake Union, Lake Fenwick, Lake Doloff and the Sammamish River.
2. Non-native yellow-flowered hawkweeds (Hieracium species): the 11 separate listings of yellow-flowered hawkweeds that were previously on the noxious weed list are now consolidated into two Class B listings by subgenus - meadow (Pilosella) and wall (Hieracium). In general, the meadow subgenus species have stolons present, have no or few leaves on the stems, and have leaf edges that are smooth or minutely toothed. The wall subgenus species in contrast generally lack stolons, have stem leaves, and have leaf edges that are conspicuously toothed or lobed.
3. Tansy ragwort is not designated by the State Weed Board for control in King County, but has been selected by the King County Weed Board for required control in all areas of King County.
