Hi everyone. I'm located in Houston TX. I have this weed in my backyard which is very stubborn and growing. I tried spraying multiple products available at local stores but no luck. Anyone knows what's the name of this plant/weed?
When it is touched, it folds it's leaves on itself as a defense mechanism I guess.
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
Glad if that can help, also please search for other Mimosas present in your area, looking back at your plant's leaves the leaves, I would like to rectify, I think that is not M pudica, but could be Mimosa strigillosa, or other similar

Definitely a Mimosa sp. It is most likely M. strigillosa as that is native to the Gulf states. The native plant society of Florida says it grows .25 to .5 ft high and 100 ft wide. Oops!
