weed ID (va.button or doveweed?)

Wondering if you guys can help me ID this weed?

I was thinking maybe Virginia buttonweed or doveweed?

looks as thought the leaf is alternating with would strikeout Virginia buttonweed I believe.



What do you guys think?

Definitely not buttonweed.

Kind of hard to tell with such a small picture but I'd guess japanese stilt grass?? I'm in your area and am seeing a lot of the stilt grass, that's what it looks like to me.

looks like that may be it (just looked it up on turffiles)

have you had much luck with control (post) and if so, what do you recommend?

It is in Fescue.

I have not, but I work for a large company and do not get to choose what chemicals I spray.

It looks like Acclaim controls it pretty well..the link below has some good info if it is stilt grass.

Bigger picture if possible. But I am very familiar with doveweed, and it doesn't look like it.
