What kind of weed is this?


Anyone recognize this weed? Initially I thought it was my lawn (fescue) spreading but no. It is unaffected by roundup!

Thank you, it certainly looks like that's it. And also makes sense that the typical herbicides don't work. I've been looking on Amazon and I think I am going to give this a shot http://www.amazon.com/Ortho-Max-Nuts...=pd_sim_misc_3

Thanks again!
