What Is This ?

It's taking over my lawn. I'm on the gulf coast in the panhandle of Fl. This stuff showed up about 2 months ago. Thanks

Thanks Guys it was the Mouse-ear Chickweed Thanks for the website so I could confirm what Grits said. Now I can tell my yard spraying company. The guy said it was too hot to spray the yard for weeds. And wasn't even sure what it was anyway. I guess I'll have to cut my sprinkler system down from everynight watering.

Chickweed is a cool season weed. How is that growing down there now? I think your wrong on the ID. Does it make white flowers?

I see what you are saying. Doh! Maybe it isn't, especially since it started showing up 2 months ago.

Get a better pic. Get one REALLY close up and one far away to see how it is taking over.
