    Metsulfuron. You might even spike it with Spotlight herbicide. I haven't tried that yet but I've heard it really kicks Buttonweed's azz.

    yellow woodsorrell (oxalis) is tough. Waxy leaves shed water. Hit it when young for best results. Not yourself (to late for that) when the weed is young.

    For tough weeds I suggest Lesco Three-way, plus Lesco Eliminate, plus Lesco Hawkeye sticker--all at maximum label rate.
