Can anyone help me indentify this weed for me please? This weed is all over my yard and it has a "Puffy" look to it. Very low creeping weed with a purple looking small flower at the end of it. I have used Weed B Gone on it and it hasnt killed it one bit. Any help is appreciated!

RE: Help with Weed!!

It looks like a Stinking Robert/Stinking Bob (Geranium robertianum) to me. It's pretty invasive in the PNW.

Not Geranium but a "relative" -- Erodium sp.

RE: Help with Weed!!
