Notes:

This is definitely a weed. There’s not much pretty about it and it grows profusely. Looks like fibrous roots from a main taproot. Stem is recumbent growing upright. I think it’s finely pubescent. The leaves are narrow with a prominent main rib underneath, and a bluntly rounded end with a fine point. The flowers are white fuzz, somewhat like a small paintbrush. I’m curious about this plant, but not excited. It looks like a cross between a fleabane and cudweed with a little bean family mixed in.

    That’s it for sure. I find it interesting that the method of control is to make my soil and lawn healthy… Thanks for the help!
