What kind of weed is this and how do I get rid of it?
I have tried digging it up and it still comes back.
Thank you

Looks like Spiderwort, maybe Tradescantia humilis, which is a Texas pest ...err, I meant pest. Dang it, Texas native. There we go, Texas pes... native. Whistling

It spreads practically by rumor. If you find a way to get rid of it, let me know!!

I live in Florida and dug up about 4 plants in the ditch. I love these plants. They do keep popping up in places, but I live the fact they keep reproducing and filling in my huge flower garden. I am thinking of taking sime up to my summer home in Michigan in a nice sunny spot, which is where they are doing so well in Florida,
