With a name like doveweed, you’d think this plant was gentle and graceful like a cooing bird, but the truth is, this common Houston weed is a total terror. A more appropriate name would be honey badger weed—it just tears through your lawn and gobbles up all the nutrients in the soil, without a care in the world. That is, until you step in with the big guns. While weed control isn’t always the simplest task, there are a few products and techniques that can help you control doveweed without too much hassle. However, not every herbicide is effective against it, so you’ll need to choose wisely.
