Within the last month there has been a plant(weed) that has taken over my boxes and is moving into other areas of my back yard. It has no flowers and will grow back in a matter of 2 weeks when pulled out of the ground.

A native plant, so not a real problem....
Pull and then spread mulch. Problem solved!

I've got this all over as well. It is even taking over my lawn. I've pulled and pulled but it is extremely persistent. Good luck!

In photo #1, those are the flowers.
