Notes:

In the past few days, this weed has popped up “all over” my bermuda grass lawn – front, rear and sides. Hundreds of these little suckers.

I’m new to Georgia (Marietta)and have no idea what the numerous weeds are and what to do about them.

What are they and how do I get rid of them? The stem of the plant is white and fuzzy. Help!!! And thanks so much.

    There are several grass safe herbicides at Lowes and Home Depot. Read the lable and make sure it is safe with grass, then spray the broadleaf invader.

    Thanks. Is it a broadleaf plantain or something else?

    No it’s not plantain. This is American burnweed (Erechtites hieracifolia). http://www.missouriplants.com/Whitealt/Erechtites_hieracifolia_page.html

    Here is a link to plantain:
