This plant grows to about 5 inches high and spreads slowly in my bermuda grass sod yard. The sod is not as thick as when originally installed due to shade it receives in the afternoon.

    Probably va. buttonweed if it has small white flowers. Toughest weed anywhere. Took over my Bermuda lawn. Only thing that worked for me was Celcius WG broadleaf herbicide by Bayer. Several applications (including spot apps) in spring and summer 2014, but it does work in hybrid Bermuda. Costs a fortune, but nothing else worked for me. Had to order on-line since it was not available in stores. I’m afraid to think of the reasons its availability is limited.
