INFORMATION ON TREATMENT FOR LAWN SPREADING WEED

Asked October 11, 2017, 11:24 AM EDT

i am in a battle with a spreading clover- like weed. It does not seem to be white clover. No white flower; rather it has a reddish tinge and a small yellow flower. i treated it twice this past month with Scotts hose liquid weed killer with no apparent success. it appears to spread like clover. Any help you can provide would be appreciated

This sounds like creeping woodsorrel, and triclopyr is the active ingredient that you are looking for.
