    Could you name this weed? It has a yellow bud and when broken, it has a milky, sticky substance. How can I get rid of it? Roundup is killing the plant, but not the roots. It is around my shrubs.

    It gets around 2-3 feet tall. Not a dandelion. Sorry about the cell phone picture but is all I have.

    Basic 2-4-D will do it. Go get Trimec or something similar at any garden store.
