Brass Buttons, Southern: A Small Annual Weed

Brass Buttons Southern

Forest and Kim Starr, Starr Environmental,

What is Southern Brass Buttons?

This annual weed grows low to the ground and is often confused with swinecress because of its leaves and flowers. However, this weed doesn't produce any odor, unlike swinecress which smells like a skunk. The leaves are long and narrow, and this weed produces small, yellow flowers that cluster into heads. It blooms primarily from January to May and is a member of the sunflower family.

Getting Rid of Brass Button Weeds

This weed has broad leaves and can take over a lawn very quickly if it's not treated early and with the right products. Apply pre-emergent herbicides with isoxaben prior to germination for optimal results. Afterward, irrigate the area with at least a half-inch of water to get the herbicide into the soil.
