Weed ID Help - Southern California

wunderpit(9)September 21, 2013

This junk is taking over a segment of my front lawn. My neighbor had it last year, and now I do. He swears that only something "illegal in California" kills it. He used whatever it was and got rid of it, but he yellowed out the area in the process and basically started over.

Wil any weed killers kill this?

Last one, single strand. It appears that each stem has 3-sprouts and a little prickly looking ball.
