    that's what I was thinking, looks like what I just planted in my back yard. If the flowers were a little more of a hot pink I would kind of want to say some type of barberry.

    It looks a lot like mexican heather, but the leaves on your specimin are more rounded on the ends. Other than that, they are almost identical. Of course I've never known mexican heather to be a "weed" either. There again, I don't live in tropical Florida!

    It looks like a species of indigo. Here in Hawaii, creeping indigo with pink flowers frequently becomes a turf weed. This weed is resistant to normal 3 way herbicides, isn't it?. I get rid of it with 1/2 oz metsulfuron + Quicksilver. St augustine and centipede will tolerate being sprayed with that combo, as long as it is well watered and fertilized.

    Leaves are not in groups of three. Opposite not alternate. Not pointed--leaf ends are rounded. I am baffled.
