Those sound like dandelions and every one of those little white parachutes contains a seed. Imagine how many hundreds of seeds you blew into the landscape! Dandelions are broadleaf weeds and the product 2,4-D will kill the weeds, down to the roots. There are pre-mixed products labeled as dandelion killers that specifically target dandelions, or you'll find the chemical 2,4-D in a number of general purpose lawn weed killing products. You can spot treat with a dandelion killer or use a product such as Scotts? Turf Builder? With Plus 2? Weed Control on your lawn.
