Gardeners' Notes:

All of a sudden, like a thief in the night, this stuff has taken over my back yard and part of the front. It is everywhere. Will my common bermuda and zoysia grass be strong enough to survive this onslaught of this noxious weed. Digging it out is impossible, another clump shows up to take its place. I am told it cannot take the summer heat, but it has been so cold here in Jackson, Tn. that this stuff is thriving and getting really thick. Where did it come from, and when will it really leave? It is the most prolific , and hardiest stuff I have ever seen!
