weed ID in lawn

kelley4180(7)April 20, 2013

Hi, getting absolutely attacked by these this spring. I've noticed they really emerged in the fall after I planted some new grass, but I had to let them go as my fescue took very slowly last fall.

Was hoping to knock them out with broadleaf selective but they are winning the battle so far.

Anybody know what this is?

I don't know but I have it all over my yard in my flower beds. Not in the lawn because we use pre-emergent. Better to prevent than to have to react.

I ran across a website with photos of common Georgia weeds the other day. Link below.

That's strange. I've pulled it up on several computers and an iPad without any issues. You can also get there by visiting www.preen.com and looking under the Weed ID menu.

the photo does not provide great details but, from that distance, it resembles lawn burweed to me. does it have prickles?
might also be beggarweed, carpetweed or carolina geranium.

Here is a link that might be useful: try this site for i.d.
