Notes:

Our St. Augustine grass has overpowered most all weeds (Pennywort, Dollar weed… etc.) except the pictured one here. Need to know what is is so I can get rid of it… Broad leaf herbicide doesn’t work.

    Chamberbitter (phyllanthus urinaria)

    Apparently medicinal, but it sure is aggressive…

    Seems like most people get this problem weed by bringing in nursery plants, or by transplanting in new plants from a gardening friend.

    Walter reeves has posted on this pest, and the news is not good:
