Please Help, Two unidentified weeds in my central Florida Centipede lawn.

Post by Sschevy454 »

Hey all,

New to the forum and hoping to get some help. I have spent hours on the internet identifying weeds in my lawn but can’t pin these two down. One is some kind of crabgrass and the other spurge? Trying to take better care of the lawn, it’s clear the previous owners did not.

Thanks for the reply. I can’t find burr clover as a listed species here but maybe it’s some other type of clover. I’ll search that route. Also gonna let a small patch grow until maybe it flowers to help ID it.

Thanks, yes googled that and it looks like three flowered beggar weed. I think the other maybe India crabgrass or blanket crabgrass. Leaf blades are less than an inch long and mowing at 1.5” doesn’t even touch it, it grows so low and flat.
