Hi,

Without seeing the weed it is difficult to give a suggestion of how to control it. There are many stubborn broadleaved weeds. Usually persistence is necessary. You might have to use a combination of digging up the larger ones and using herbicides on the smaller ones. Herbicides need to be applied when plants are actively growing and follow the directions about whether or not, it should be watered in. Most weeds are actively growing this month so June is a good time to apply a broadleaved weed killer. If you applied it earlier, it might have been too cold for a lot of active growth to occur. Perhaps you could bring the weed down to a large, local garden center that sells lawn care products. Maybe someone could identify it for you and recommend which herbicide to use.
