The London Rocket is a naturalized weed native to Europe. It is most common in riparian areas, fields, drainage ditches, and in vacant lots. Because of the timing of desert winter rains this year, this weed seems to be everywhere. “The common name ‘London rocket’ comes from its abundance after the Great Fire of London in 1666. It was also noticed on bomb sites after the Blitz.”
