Carolina Geranium? The leaf structure looks similar but slightly different but maybe it is just the photo?

After looking at the Carolina Geranium, this weed never looks like that. This stuff once it gets going, the clumps get bigger and bigger quickly.

I have never seen it flower. My mother in laws yard starting getting it up to almost a foot in diameter. Never saw it flower there either.

I am a firm beleiver in Celcius. I use the medium rate right now [.085] with MSO and that way I can use it again later if needed.

I use Speedzone Southern with Simazine in the late fall.
