    Hello all, happy Holidays and Happy New Year. I have this weed on my easement and have tried several weed killers and all they do is kill the top but not the root. Grows right back. Any idea what kind of weed is this and what I can use to kill them? Thanks

    Almost looks like some type of dianthus.

    Virginia Buttonweed - Good luck on eradicating this one. Deal with this all the time. Manor and three-way gives me the best control. Will not totally get rid of it in St. Augistine and Centipede.

    Will look at my weed killer to see if it kills this type. All I can say is that i spray weed killer, it kills the top but not the roots. Just comes right back. ARRR Goal in 2009 is to get rid of this weed. Thanks

    Are you mixing Manor and three way together or apply separately? I found Manor online but not sure what is three way. I wonder if my local lesco dealer sells this?
