Name this weed.....

Can anyone identify this weed. I have about 1 acre to spray and this stuff is all over it. Want to make sure I have the best product for the specific weed so I don't have to respray the whole place 2 or even 3 times.

It has a lead that looks like clover, but the stem is woody. No flowering that I know of. It has a persistent root system and it almost blanketing many areas of the lawn. This lawn is in the middle of the woods. The shade grass is thick and has been water and seeded many times over the years, but there have been very few broadleaf applications and this weed is the main concern for this customer.

Well, I can only attach one pic at a time. So will post more pics in a replay

Lespadeeza. It's rampant here this year.

Wish I could grow acres of it in my food plots.

Alas, it only seems to show up in lawns when it's unwanted.

Thanks for the reply. For some reason, I always tight lespadeeza grew taller, like alfalfa. I guess I might if this guy didn't mow his lawn.

What is the best broadleaf control for it?

I've found that it almost always takes two treatments of three way for me.

Not saying it's not but I've never seen lezpadeeza grow tall like that.

On controlling it I use metsulfuron.

Is the metsulfron safe over fine fescues?
