What weed is this

Texas_WeedAugust 15, 2012

I've got this weed I've never seen before spreading over my St. Augustine lawn this year. Can someone tell me what it is & a cure?

If you do not get an answer here you might want to take the photo to your local extension agent.

Yes, or you can try posting the photo to the Name That Plant forum or the Weeds Forum.

I think is a type of wild aster. I have it. It has some whitish aster-like flower but it still looks kind of lanky and unattractive. Most of the time I just pull them out. If I have been too lazy, have let them take over the area and the wife is freaking over how wild the yard looks... then I use a broad-leaf herbicide.
