Virginia Buttonweed Weed Killer

Diodia virginiana Herbicide

Description of Buttonweed, Virginia (Diodia virginiana):
Virginia buttonweed is the number one weed problem in southern lawns. It's extremely aggressive and has multiple methods of spreading, including seeding both above and below the soil with self-pollinating flowers, tap roots that allow it to survive through the winter, and the ability to grow from stem fragments. Because this plant can grow from stem fragments, it will encourage more of it to grow when mowing and not bagging and removing the stem fragments.`
According to the manufacturer approved labels: The following 10 weed killers, applied at the listed application rates, will control Virginia Buttonweed.
