    I've always thought it was called "Iron weed" but I google that and pics do not match up. Round up will slowly kill it but was thinking of mixing up some salt water & spray them, as its a lot cheaper.

    Can't see the flowers very well, but it looks like hypericum.

    I call them iron weeds too, but mine doesnt look as nice. I used round up on mine bout 2 months ago an there still down. Hope they stay that way. I hate using a trimmer on them and i hate using a saw blade on something so unstable. Salt water you say? That sounds cool. I would think it woud not be a good idea to put through a backpack spayer. Correct? or just wash it out good? With warm water mabie?
