Beggarweed Weed Control Products

Beggarweed (Desmodium canum) also known as “Creeping beggarweed” is a broadleaf perennial weed that is develops from a large taproot with many branched stolons rooting at the nodes along the steams which resembles “creeping”.

Beggarweed leaves are composed of three elliptical looking leaflets which vary in size and are hairy along with the stems. Beggarweed flowers and range from pink to rose in color. The fruit of the beggarweed consists of a 6 segmented seedpod that will separate and can attach to clothing when brushed up against. Creeping beggarweed reproduce and spread by seed, stolons or segments of the taproot. Beggarweed are commonly found in the Southern United States from southern Texas and all the way across to Florida.

Creeping beggarweed can be difficult to control due to its spreading ability by deep rhizomes.  Physically, they are difficult to control primarily due to the large taproot and deep rhizomes makes hand-pulling frustratingly difficult and largely ineffective..The plant also produces jointed seedpods which can easily come apart and spread when physically pulled out.. Mowing is also largely ineffective as beggarweed can tolerate close mowing.

The best way to combat beggarweed is by having a dense turf through the use of proper fertilization and sufficient watering to prevent moisture stress.
