Re: Ref Books to Learn Which Weeds are Which???

Wendy see if you can find something regional. Texas weed books wouldn't
help you much. And amen on that &%$#@!! stinking bermuda. I cleaned out
my big rose bed 3 weeks ago and it's coming back already. I noticed it
when I was watering and Sugar was in the big rose bed happily munching

Makes me nuts. I did find a seedling of my caryopteris that I will carry
to Jesse next month, so it's good I do let some weeds grow until I can
identify them....
