|Virginia creeper, dead leaves from Vinegar spray|
I looked up the REAL name, Hackelia Opiz... and the English word is Stickseed or beggar lice...which says it all.
Our side yard, now minus the Big Tree that came down, is a weed bed full of these green plants with purple flowers.. Don't even ask what happens when dogs walk through these sticky pods... Think lots of brushing before entering the house. Which spreads the seeds to make more.

ENTER a gallon jug of Vinegar...the natural weed killer. It kills everything it touches, so be careful using it. Just spray and soak the leaves and wait.
NOTE: Boiling water from a teakettle will kill weeds, like in stones or between cracks in cement.
