I live in South Carolina and it seems no matter what I do or put on these weeds they do not go away. I need help identifying the type of weed to better my chances of getting rid of it. Thanks

It looks llike spurge. If it has a milky sap it is probably something in the spurge family.

Japanese Clover. I don't know if it's in the spurge family though.

It's a pain. Pre emergents in the spring and fall are very helpful in management. It's frost sensitive here in sc.

Thanks. I use the pre emergents in spring and it still shows up. Maybe I'll have to try different brands to see if one works better then what I've used.

There's No milky sap that I've ever noticed.
