Pansies in turf

Some previous owner must have planted johnny jumpups along side my house and I am finding that they scoff at herbicides that have rid the area of everything from plantain to dandelions. The pansies aren't even slightly miffed. I have been very careful to pick off blooms to keep them from spreading any farther, but if you could suggest something that will get rid of them completely, I would appreciate it very much.

RE: Pansies in turf

Dear Carmellia,

Thank you very much for the inquiry. My suggestion is that you mix quinclorac (Drive) with the broadleaf herbicide you have been using. Use a half rate of the broadleaf herbicide and 1/3 rate of the Drive. You may see some activity f from the application this summer, but most likely your best activity will be in early fall.

Again thanks for the inquiry.
