    What is this weed?

    I am finding it in teh lawn and flower beds...some type of clover that is very resistant. *trucewhiteflag*

    Help with identifying it.

    Woodsorrel it is----------and customers will go to nurseries and buy this weed and plant it in their gardens. Then pay someone to remove it later. LOL!! Just kidding!- this weed is beautiful in the right place, and once it spreads to other areas, it is a pain in the neck.
    It does spread though!!!!!
    We are having a severe outbreak of Green Kyllinga here.........it is taking over like crazy.
    Stinks to high heaven's when you mow it. Similar to nutsedge but a clumping form of weed.

    Yellow woodsorrel....it's tough to kill because of it's waxy coating liquid herbicides have a tendency to bead up and fall right off of it. Make sure you use a good surfactant or sticker.

    What's the best way to control Green Kyllinga in cool season grass. Sedge Hammer only suppresses.

    Dismiss. Sedgehammer is virtually useless against Kyllinga species. I know this from years of experience. I use Certainty, but I only treat warm season grasses and Dismiss is illegal here. Do not use Certainty in cool season grasses unless it is or your goal is to convert to 100% KBG.
