This weed is worse this year..

Are you guys having a more than usual problem with this stuff this year? Celcius knocks it out but, I am just seeing pop up more this year. Maybe it was the wet summer.

Good old Fall Aster. I have not had much problem since I started spraying Celsius in March and again in June at medium rates. This hits it when it is young and looks different so there is nothing to transform into the hard flowering plant that every sees now. It is always everywhere on untreated lawns though.

I think it is kind of cool how it looks so different at early age and then changes to the hard flowering stuff we see in the fall. http://scsphotogallery.tamu.edu/gall...ckland_aster_6

One of the nurseries actually grows that but they call it Roadside Aster. it's popping up in my lawn also but mostly due to the fact the lawn has been on a meager water diet all summer.

I have pictures of our flood this week posted at http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.p...=1#post4894581. I may have gotten an easy 14" of rain at my house in about six hours. For the month I'm around the 22" mark. Most of the rain all has fallen outside the Lake Travis water shed. It has gone up 5-7' but is still 57' down from being full.

Headed to Huntsville Saturday to pick up a new 2013 Ram 2500. There was no dealer ad ons to bloat the price. The true MSRP was $45,355 and I'll be down the road for $$33,500. I'm pretty happy about $11,855 off the list price for a work truck. No trades either to mess things up.
