Q

Can you tell me how to get rid of the Star of Israel that is in your lawn?

Answer(s)

A

You are probably asking about Star-of-Bethlehem, Ornithogalum umbellatum.  This is a very common weed in turfgrass and University of Tennessee has a good fact sheet on this weed, click on http://www.tennesseeturfgrassweeds.org/admin/Lists/Fact%20Sheets/Attachments/6/W216_starofbethlehem.pdf.
