Selfheal is one of the more difficult weeds to control in lawns.
Identify the problem
Selfheal is a perennial weed commonly found in lawns. It can grow up to 30 cm tall if left uncontrolled in waste areas. It is often found in moist to wet lawns, but can also tolerate dryness. Selfheal has a creeping stem which allows it to form dense mats. It is tolerant of many selective lawn herbicides which makes it a problem weed.
