Creeping Beggarweed Weed Killer

Desmodium canum Herbicide

Description of Beggarweed, Creeping (desmodium canum):
Creeping beggarweed is a perennial weed, meaning it comes back every year, that has a massive taproot. Tap-rooting plants can drive-down and get the nutrients that turf can't, so keeping the soil in optimal conditions for turfgrass is a good cultural practice to prevent creeping beggarweed. The leaves are composed of three varying-sized leaflets in an elliptic shape (rounded at the base and pointed at the tip).
