What is this? I thought it was some form of crabgrass, however the baking soda trick seems to only yellow it (after 2 days) and it seems to have done more harm to my zoysia.http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d35/pyromaniac6565/homes/House/Outside/IMAG0025.jpg after mowing, it sprouts these little purple flowers.http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d35/pyromaniac6565/homes/House/Outside/IMAG0021.jpg it seems to be very invasive, taking over flower beds, as well as st augustine and bahiagrass. It has a tougher time with the zoysia, however it does appear in bald spots and on some sidewalk edges.http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d35/pyromaniac6565/homes/House/Outside/IMAG0023.jpg

Here is another picture of the baking soda on it in a larger areahttp://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d35/pyromaniac6565/homes/House/Outside/IMAG0024.jpg

If the petals are equal it is probably doveweed, Murdannia nudiflora

It reminds me of some type of Wandering Dew. Several kinds of it..
