This weed is suddenly everywhere in my centipede lawn, and in my rock garden where the main plant is phlox. What is it? Will Atrazine (safe for centipede) kill it. Is Atrazine safe for phlox? What other chemicals will kill it without harming phlox? All comments welcome. Thanks!

    Houston we’ve got a problem! Lespedeza it is and in your phylox it’s going to take the five finger solution. One might call it the ten finger solution because one set is going to get tired pretty quick. The Atrizine is ok for the centipede but your phylox will be history if you use it there.

    Looks like lespadeeza to me… Valuable soil builder… I encourage it in my garden.
