We CAN NOT find out anything about our weeds. So, after much researching, my speciality, I found the email address to the Travis County Master Gardener and we have been exchanging emails. Well, about one week has gone by without any new info and I thought perhaps they had given up or just forgot about us...not so. (Read Blog Entry about our pesky weed)
We’re still on the hunt for the particular name of this plant. It
appears to be a member of the Aster family of which many fit the
pictures you have sent us. We will send this on to ”experts” that may
be able to tell us it’s true ID. Once known we can offer suggestions
for eliminating it from your lawn area however this may not be easy
especially if you want to protect children and pets.
We will be in touch…
