Turfgrass Weed Control Database
The Turfgrass Weed Control Database contains the same information and pictures included in the Miscellaneous Publication MP-521. The weeds are arranged alphabetically by scientific name because common names vary and thus be inaccurate.
Red Deadnettle, Lamium purpureum
Three-ways (2,4-D + MCPP + dicamba) alone will not control purple deadnettle.Effective deadnettle control requires a tank mix of a postemergence herbicide with simazine or atrazine. Typical mixes are a three-way plus simazine or atrazine or metsulfuron plus simazine or atrazine. Apply early (between December and March 1) before the weeds get big.
