Help! This weed (not the clover) is taking over my Fescue pasture. What is it and how can I kill it???

    I think you have creeping buttercup. This line drawing best shows its leaves http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=RARE3&photoID=rare3_001_avd.tif
    In a pasture I think it would be important to contact your UGA county extension service agent regarding control.

    Hairy buttercup is apparently the more likely culpret for the state of Georgia.

    Thanks so much. I looked it up and it more closely resembles the creeping version. Looks like I have my work cut out for me!

    I believe this is a weed I have in my Sandy Springs home. Roundup no help. What can I use to get rid of it. The leaves are tiny and the plant lies flat along the ground.

    Isabel, in bedding areas where you can contact the weed only Round Up concentrate at 3 oz per gal of water should kill buttercup. What you are describing with a tiny leaf may be something else. Again, the above mix will be successful but should only be used where it is possible to contact the weed only.
