Time for annual game of "Name That Lawn Weed."
Posted by: d4

Using Google I have positively identified a bunch of weeds in the lawn, but this one below eludes me.





Not looking to 100% eradicate everything. I don't mind a weed here and there in the lawn. I like a little bit of clover. It's just that when it's out of control the clover gets way too dense and kills the grass. Just want to control it within reason.

Plenty of other weeds:
Wild Violet
White Clover
Yellow Woodsorrel
Goose Grass
etc...

FWIW, I've let my front grass grow very tall.. mow at 4" setting on the mower. The grass shades the weeds, and it feels like walking on a super soft carpet.

I mow at the tallest setting as well. I think after years of going natural and hoping for the best, Mother Nature is slowly winning and reclaiming my patch of grass with her weeds. One of the worst offenders is wild violet. I let it go for too long, and now that it's established, it's impossible to control without specialized chemicals.

The photo is a bit of a "catfish." I zoomed in and used the dreamy Portrait mode on the iPhone. Hah!

Your builtin plant identifier in Photos will probably think it’s corn speedwell, gallium or wild asparagus.

To get to the identifier, take a photo, open it, and swipe up. The first option below the photo should be Look up - Plants”. Or use a dedicated app (PictureThis is my go-to)

HOLY COW!! That's a freakin cool (iOS 15) feature! I had no idea. Thank you for the heads up. And corn speedwell is a 100% exact weed match. I guess this will be the last game of "Name That Lawn Weed." LOL

Back in the 80’s I was a novice taxi driver. In those days we operated with two way radios. It was a multiplex system, so normally the fleet could not hear the individual driver, only the dispatcher. My first night I got an order.

“Number 26.”

“NUMBER 26, COME IN 26!”

Me, “Uh, 26?”

“Man oh man…. sorry to wake you 26, go get the Jockey Club.”

So I said, “Where is that?”

And he said, “You see a phone booth down the street?”

Me, “I think there’s one on Stark.”

Dispatcher, “OK, go to the phone booth, open the yellow pages and tear out the section for bars and restaurants. THEN NEVER ASK ME AGAIN.”

I think this picture is actually from one of those “I’m not a robot” tests.

Enter the letters and numbers you see above.

Mine doesn't say "look up" when I swipe up. I get "copy image" as the first thing and there is no "look up" that I can find.
I have an iPhone X running 15.5.

Unfortunately you need a device with the A12 Bionic chip or later. Looks like the iPhone X just missed the cut.

iPad, 8th generation, and later
iPad Air, 3rd generation and later
iPad Pro 11-inch, all generations
iPad Pro 12.9-inch, 3rd generation and later

Oh my gosh, that's great. I just identified an amazing weed we have that I almost like as common morning glory or purple morning glory. Most morning glory around here is white and smaller. Anyway... I will use the junk out of this feature, since our yard is the Amazon of weeds. The Weediversity project.

Perhaps field bindweed:

Weird, I just looked it up, and the flowers look like that, but the leaves etc. look different. If you search wild morning glory, it looks like that. Some of the wild morning glory is labeled field bindweed which is confusing. What is in my yard is the big purple one, and I'm surprised to see people plant it, although it does look cool. It's considered a weed here for some reason. Maybe because it spreads so fast.
