Turfgrass Weed Control Database
Manor, Mansion or Blade (metsulfuron) is an effective violet control herbicide in bermudagrass, centipedegrass, St. Augustinegrass and zoysiagrass. Products containing triclopyr and clopyralid (Confront, Turflon), 2,4-D + fluroxypyr + dicamba (Escalade 2) or triclopyr + phenoxy herbicides (Cool Power, HorsePower, or Chaser) are fairly effective for violet control and these products can be used on cool-season grasses such as tall fescue. Repeat applications are usually required. Mid to late fall applications are best followed by mid-spring to early summer applications. Ortho Chickweed and Oxalis Killer (8% triclopyr) is a good choice for homeowners. Do not use this product on centipedegrass, St. Augustinegrass or bermudagrass.
