View Full Version : help with weed

02-17-2009, 06:35 PM
I have a customer who has a weed that looks similar to clover, but the leafs are kinda pointed. It also gets purple flowers on it as it matures. I don't do weed control, but he was asking what it was, and how he could get rid of it. Any help would be appreciated.

go to the tools feature on this site and look through for the weed id site.

that should help.

Could be henbit, could be creeping Charlie, or it could even be speedwell. A few pictures (up close) would certainly help.

I was thinking maybe he should be asking Dr Phil.:laugh:

Tell him Weed B Gone should work. Read the label and apply as directed. More is NOT better.

DON'T do it yourself. You need a license to apply and there are BIG fines.
