Matchweed Weed Killer

Lippia nodiflora Herbicide

Description of Matchweed (Lippia nodiflora):
Matchweed is a mat-forming broadleaf weed with hairy, lateral stems that are freely branched and rooting at the nodes. Its leaves grow opposite and feature small teeth at the outer tip. Blooming from May through October, Matchweed features flowers that are rose-purple or white in color. They form in a head at the tip of a long stalk, resembling the head of a match (hence the name Matchweed). Reproduction occurs by seeds and stolons. Occurring in low moist areas in open woods and turf, this broadleaf weed also prefers open sandy areas and can be found on stream banks and pond margins. Matchweed thrives throughout much of the United States, except in the northernmost states.
