Can someone please identify what this weed is? I attached a photo. It's the white flower with yellow center.

Spanish Needles (Bidens pilosa) or another variety of Bidens.

The photo is blurry but it does look a lot like Bidens.

Might be bidens... Or... How about fish mint (houttuynia cordata)?
When was pic taken?
Was the plant a single plant, or did it grow aggressively with roots attatched all through the colony?
St Pete floria? Where's that? Florida?
Is the plant in the garden at your house?
What characteristics does it display to deserve being called a weed?

Even though GreenIvy's photo is a tad blurry, it still looks more like Bidens to my old blurry eyes Green Grin! but H. cordata has apparently been vouchered in Hillsborough County (Tampa area) which is across the bay from St. Petersburg: http://florida.plantatlas.usf....


For comparison: Chameleon Plant (Houttuynia cordata)

No doubt in my mind that it's Bidens as Lin said.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
