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?

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.
