This plant/weed is naturalizing next to a grassy area that was bare dirt. It looks like some type of fern, but if it is a weed, then I want to do away with it! Can you help?
Thanks so much.

    It’s Phyllanthus urinaria, or Mimosaweed. Definitely a weed, and a difficult to get rid of one at that.

    This @#$%^& weed has taken over my entire back yard. I’m desperate to find a way to kill it. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    I’m going to try roundup this weekend. I’ve gotten rid of English Ivy and some other type of Bamboo shoot, so I know the diligence it may take. Thanks for the input-looks like I have my work cut out for me!
