Stephen Compton, noxious weeds coordinator with Clemson University, talks about the Commelina benghalensis, or Benghal dayflower, a state- and federally-designated noxious weed, on Bay Street in Beaufort the afternoon of Oct. 28, 2013. The weed recently was found in South Carolina for the first time, and a group of researchers from Clemson University are in Beaufort for the week going door to door looking for it.
