What's the name and where to find information about this type of weed. I am in zone 9b in Florida.
SOLVED: what weed is this?
Thank you for the effort, Suse. It's seems to be more like a type of grass, it's on my yard and covers several feet all around. I had it last year and as I recall, it is lush in spring/summer, but dies in fall/winter.
You nailed it, nel5397. That's it and I didn't know how invasive and tough to eradicate it is, particularly when there is a lot of rain, as we have been having lately. It seems that I have a long war in my hands with it. Makes you wonder why is it that you pay for fertilizing and weed control services and then you get these results.
Thanks for your assistance. You contributed to my education.
The common name for that is doveweed.
This was the right direction.
The latin name is Murdannia nudiflora, from what I have never heard before. It belongs to the Commelinaceae-family, like Tradescantia does, too.
Sure is a healthy, robust little monster! Bet it is difficult to get rid of!
It looks healthy, can be easily confused with grass, it's dense, fluffy, very green, until the flowers start to show, and then you are brought back to reality. According to Bayer Solutions: "In fact, it is classified as one of the world’s worst weeds"
