Sandra Bidner Plant Diagnoisis-Corn Speedwell

Weed Identification ( Corn Speedwell)

Master Gardeners submitted picture to be identified.

>Michelle Wiesbrook DDDI Diagnosis: This is definitely some type of Veronica species. It looks like corn speedwell to me.

>Michelle's  Recommendation: Corn speedwell is a winter annual. Hand pull or remove with a hoe before it develops seed. Premergent herbicides can be used in the fall to prevent this weed. Or, leave the plant alone. It will die when the weather turns hot. It's low growing and kind of cute.
