This plant is extremely difficult to eradicate, slowly taking over areas of lawn grass, with the exception of soysia grass which chokes out (not completely) the ability to thrive. IMO, there are no effective herbicides. I have slowly pulled tap roots that are 20" long after two weeks of rain in Delaware. a VERY frustrating lawn week!
