Anyone know the name of this weed?


Does anyone know what this weed is called? I live in southern Connecticut (town of Hamden). My grass is mostly fescue and perennial rye. I put down a broadleaf killer but it didn't get rid of these darn weeds. I know I can send a sample to my local agricultural department but I thought I'd check here first.

Any ideas?

It's hard to tell because the leaves are curled, but here's photos of weeds in Connecticut. Many of these are in my garden! I'd never heard of corn gluten meal inhibiting growth as the write up says.

Any chance that they are volunteers from nearby trees? I know they don't look like it, and not saying they are, but our yard is full of volunteers for a month or so this time every year. Ours are mostly maples and birch, and they eventually subside after a few mowings, but sometimes they are clearly this or that and other times not so much so. And some years they have more of a weed looking stalk than that of a baby tree.

Thanks for the link, what a great resource! After reading that, and some more googling, I now believe they are Wild Violets. They aren't flowering because I keep cutting them when I mow the lawn. Apparently they take additional herbicide applications to remove.

Thanks for the help!
