    Growing in Central Florida lawn amidst a broad mix of grasses and weeds. Pics are of a batch I pulled up and set aside in a pot last night. A little wilted since, and not very well showing the spreading clump it grows in. It stands out against St.Augustine, as a little lighter green, non-hairy, somewhat wavy leafed, from outward radiating (reddish) runners, lower growing and hence does not always get it's blade tips cut at my (3-3/4" - 4") mowing height. It reminds a little of wandering jew....maybe same family?

    Thanks for looking and any help.

    Thanks guys. I'll check those two out and see.

    Appears the flowers resemble the dove weed more than the dayflower. Still digging around on the net. I will allow my sample to flower more and compare, as well as look a little better with a lupe at the features.

    I appreciate the help!
