Notes:

Weed growing by edge of driveway and is thick growing close and matted together. Is this a type of spurge? How do I get rid of it.

    Don’t think it’s purslane. I believe Bobby got it. It fits the pictures of prostrate lespedeza pretty well.

    Purslane? but not particularly healthy.

    Not carpet weed. Not spotted spurge. But I thought lespedeza had a upright stem. At least the species grown as fodder that I’m familiar with. I didn’t realize that some (or one?) species grows prostrate. Thanks, Bobby.
