    A customer called me today, and asked if I would be able to come over and remove some "purple flowery weeds." Does anybody know what these are...and the best way to remove them?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    In SE. Iowa that is creeping charlie. It is tough stuff. Deep rooted - The only way to get rid of it is 3 applications two weeks apart of trimec

    LOL........my first thought would be Henbit, too. But, you know, that description could certainly point in many directions. You should go look. If you don't know what it is, take a picture. I bet someone on here will know for sure.
