Purple bloom dark green leafs roots look like a potato with spines. Nothing I have found will kill it. I have st. Augustine and centipede grass. The second picture is a long skinny 3″ tall weed short leafs both spread super fast. Both like shade and sun. They spread like wildfire.

    The tall weed looks like it might be cleavers.

    Violets provide flowers vitally needed for bees in what would otherwise be a desert-like monoculture lawn. Also, they are edible. 🙂

    It’s a violet, one of the wild Viola species, not a fancy cultivated type. There are quite a few species and they can be difficult to tell apart. Yes, they can be difficult to eradicate, spreading by seed and any broken piece of root.
