Looking for the right thing to apply to creeping charlie, the only broadleaf my 3 way seems to miss. Any suggestions?

T zone looks like it might be promising. I like that it controls sedge as well.

In warm season grass, I think you can safely use a "sulfuron' to control it. Have a look at this, then decide. http://www.tennesseeturfgrassweeds.org/admin/Lists/Fact%20Sheets/Attachments/24/W266.pdf

Thanks for the site! I also have wild violets in an area of another lawn. Might as well get some advice on that as well.

What controls creeping charlie will usually take out violet.

Drive works great for both!

Exactly. I would not suggest a routine Three Way amine for either. Hard to control weeds deserve a more active product.

Thanks, I figured they are similar weeds so why not get advice on the other on the same thread. I will read up on drive as well.

The temperature and 'current' growing conditions have a lot to do with it as well... If the plants are drought or heat stressed in any way they typically do not absorb the chemical into their systems as well and therefore do a very poor job of killing them...

We had marvelous conditions for taking care of CC this spring here. Plenty of moisture, a little on the cool side, but enough warm days to stimulate activity. Using 3-way amine spike with Quicksilver I've completely wiped out some plots of CC that normally would have taken at least 2 apps to get good control.

Momentum FX2 with triclopyr will knock out charlie.

I liked it until Imprelis came along then man, did that stuff work even better, and smoked violets. Then the poo hit the fan on Imprelis and you can no longer buy it.

Now I am going to give TZone a shot but I have to go out on the cooler days to use, and will be mainly spot spray. I will likely go back to Momentum for broadcasting.

T-Zone Herbicide works great for Creeping Charlie control (also known as ground ivy).

In May I applied T-Zone at the 1.5 oz/1,000 sq ft rate and got excellent results. Also according to the universities, fall is an excellent time to control this weed.
