I.D. This FL weed

I've always thought it was called "Iron weed" but I google that and pics do not match up. Round up will slowly kill it but was thinking of mixing up some salt water & spray them, as its a lot cheaper.


Stihl Kombi System
028 Super, 066 Chainsaws, PP 800 Pole Saw
F-150, F-350 Trucks
Ariens Rear Tine Tiller
(6) Trailers:
5x12, 6x12, 6x14, 8x16, 7x18, 6x22
Asus Transformer Infinity TY700 Tablet
Galaxy S3

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

Can't see the flowers very well, but it looks like hypericum.

I call them iron weeds too, but mine doesnt look as nice. I used round up on mine bout 2 months ago an there still down. Hope they stay that way. I hate using a trimmer on them and i hate using a saw blade on something so unstable. Salt water you say? That sounds cool. I would think it woud not be a good idea to put through a backpack spayer. Correct? or just wash it out good? With warm water mabie?
