    I have a serious problem in some of my lawns with Virgina buttonweed. The only thing I have found labeled for VB is Image. It says it will reduce competetion from VB, and may take several applications. Any one else have experience with other chemicals with VB. I have lawns with Bermuda, Zoysia and fescue.:)

    Not sure if this is the best answer but I use momentum. It usually takes at least 2 apps. and it is gone. I have found that the yellow plants (Virus in plant causes leaves to be yellow) die off quickly but the deep green plants take 2 or more apps.

    I am open for a better suggestion also!;)
