Lawn weed ID

Posted by julia42 9 (My Page) on

I have a lawn weed I'd like to ID. It is a small, low-growing lawn weed that creates a fairly charming blanket of white four petaled white flowers. It's starting to take over our yard a bit, so I'm trying to determine if there's a reason for me to try to eradicate it. I think it's pretty and I have to mow it less than the St. Augustine's, but I want to make sure I'm not going to regret leaving it.

I live just south of Houston Texas in Zone 9.

Looks like Diodia.

RE: Lawn weed ID

Thanks. That's definitely it. I'm surprised I couldn't find anything IDing online before posting on this forum since it seems to be considered one of the most difficult lawn weeds in the south. Live and learn, huh?
