This weed has invaded my iris & daylily bed. I put down a pre-emergent but either it was the wrong one or else it just didn’t work. Short of uprooting the whole bed, what can I use to kill this weed?
Thank you.

    This weed reproduces by seed. Labeled preEmergents include Gallery and/or Barricade. Always read the label before using pesticide products. Asiatic Hawksbeard can also be managed by removing the plant before the bloom sets seed.
