Notes:

This is rapidly creeping into my fescue lawn. What can I do to stop the spreading without killing my lawn? I used to have a healthy dark green lawn and now this has taken over in areas that have somewhat moist soil that a landscaper cut too short. How many applications will I need and will it turn my lawn yellow before any fescue can grow back?

    Also check out other species in pennywort (Hydrocotyle). From this distance the flowers & fruits are hard to see. I’m wonder if this is Asiatic /lawnmarsh pennywort (H. sibthorpioides)? Best wishes!
