    I can't seem to control this weed in flower beds. The more I pull, the more it grows. I applied roundup but it never fully kills it. Any suggestions or products I can use will be most appreciated!!!

    Thanks

    Without seeing it up close, my best id is crabgrass. Annual, and comes from seed. Call Lesco and ask for advise on Snapshot. Roy

    Common Bermuda (Wiregrass) is what it looks like to me.

    instead of weed killer look for the stuff that kills EVERYTHING if it is indeed crab grass then weed killer wont end it because now thats mostly formulated to not kill grasses

    That is definitely bermuda. You will definitely need to use a non-selective herb. to kill, but becareful of the surrounding plants. Bermuda is tough...pulling it may be your best bet.

    The roots of bermuda travel everywhere so good luck. Digging it out and pulling is best if it has not took over yet. If so just keep spraying. Some of the over-the-top herbicides work good on it if it gets into any other shrubs.
