Notes:

These clover like clusters have invaded my (formerly) beautiful emerald zoysia lawn. It has a stiff wire like stem and grows in clusters. We’ve tried the herbicide ‘Image’ but believe it may need a ‘weed be gone’ type weed killer? Trying not to harm the zoysia. Any recommendations much appreciated.

    Common lespedeza.Looks like your lawn could use some core aeration. Make sure you use a preEmergent next year to help stop this annual before it starts. http://www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/pests/weeds/hgic2322.html

    You might want to leave the lespadeeza alone…
    Valuable soil building plant…
    Probably the best friend your turf has.
