Answer: Redstem Filaree (Erodium cicutarium) is an prostrate broadleaf winter annual or biennial weed. A member of the geranium family, it has fern-like, or feathery appearing foliage in a rosette. The stems are reddish and there is a large, white taproot. 2,4-D will kill most broadleaf weeds, but 2,4-D is not recommended for use on Flortam. So, your only option at this point is to dig the pesky weed out, taproot and all, or spot treat with a weed killer containing 2,4-D with the knowledge that you might also be killing your turf. Wish I had something more encouraging to offer!
