This weed is taking over my zoysia lawn. No one at Farmer D’s or at Pikes could identify it. The leaves are very small and there is no central root, each leaf has a root, making it difficult to manage by manually pulling the weeds.

    I can’t tell from the pics, but it resembles nepata. Does it have an odor?

    I am seeing ground ivy now and it looks similar to your photo. See a previous post to Walter here: http://www.walterreeves.com/gardening-q-and-a/creeping-charlie-ground-ivy-control/
    One other weed it may be is Brisly mallow. In the West Georgia area the mallow is more obvious than ground ivy at this time of year. Compare to this site: http://www.forestryimages.org/browse/detail.cfm?imgnum=5370213
