People typically associate root vegetables and potatoes with the Midwest. But did you know that North Carolina produces more sweet potatoes than any other state? The success of the sweet potato in North Carolina is primarily due to its temperate climate and availability of nutrients and resources. Whether they're grown on a large commercial scale or in a residential yard, sweet potatoes also need to have an environment free of weeds and competitors to survive. Whether you are growing sweet potatoes on your own or you just want a picturesque property, there are some weed species to be aware of that can be an eyesore at the least and potentially cause more significant damage.


  • Chickweed
  • Clover
  • Crabgrass
  • Dallisgrass
  • Ground Ivy
  • Hairy Bittercress
  • Henbit
  • Indian Mock Strawberry
  • Orchardgrass
  • Virginia Buttonweed


Chickweed, says North Carolina State University, is categorized as either a winter annual or a perennial. It is a low-spreading weed with a relatively shallow but broad root system. Chickweed is prevalent in many areas around Charlotte, including residential and commercial properties. Given its ability to spread so quickly, it is one of the most problematic weeds for fields and stadiums, as it can significantly inhibit turf growth. Chickweed typically forms in clusters. It thrives on water and shade.


Clover is a perennial weed. It is characterized by a white bloom and its sprawling ground cover nature. Clover is a hardy weed that can survive a frost and endure fluctuating temperatures. However, it can also be treated easily if it has already invaded your property. Herbicides can control clover growth in the spring. Frequent mowing can keep clover growth at bay too, but treatments may not be successful until the second or third moving.


Crabgrass is another common, low-spreading grass in the Charlotte region. It gets its name for the crab-like way in which it crawls along the ground. Crabgrass grows in clusters characterized by long stems and wide blades... The clusters also have tall, firm seed heads. Crabgrass can be eradicated either by pulling the plant out by its roots or by applying an herbicide.


Dallisgrass is considered one of the most challenging weeds to control if your lawn contains fescue grass. If Dallisgrass has already taken root in your yard, one of the best ways to control its spread is by pulling each plant out by the roots. Pre-emergent weed application is not always effective in controlling the spread of Dallisgrass. The weed can also be challenging to control once it has been established. If Dalligrass spreads to the point of infestation, it may need a professional's assistance to control. Several applications of spray may be required for proper management.


Some people buy ivy for ornamental and decorative purposes. When placed in a pot, windowsill, or other contained area, ivy adds a stunning look to any home. But one species, Ground ivy, is a fast-growing weed that can easily cause problems in a yard. Ground ivy is a perennial weed that grows along the ground. Its leaves stand out for their scalloped edges. Ground ivy also produces flowers that range in color from violet to blue. Ivy thrives in shade, and it requires a fair amount of water to grow at its best. Man made herbicides can control the ivy's spread to some extent. However, exposing it to excessive sunlight and restricting water application is a more natural and equally effective way to manage its growth.


While most weeds take off in the summertime, Hairy bitter grass is a cold-loving weed that emerges in late fall or early spring. It produces small flowers that vary in color from white to purple. The seeds are easily spread from the plant by the wind or through insects that carry them off upon landing. Hairy bitter grass, unlike some weeds, is relatively easy to control. The trick to controlling bittergrass, however, is to apply pesticides early in the plant's life, ideally before the second or third mowing. The plant is harder to kill when it matures.


Henbit is another weed that appears in the late fall or early spring. It produces picturesque purple flowers that can range from small to large. As with Hairy bittergrass, this plant gets much harder to control and kill as it matures. Therefore, the best way to stop its growth is through consistent mowings and by applying an herbicide early on.


Indian mock strawberry is easy to mistake for a strawberry plant. It also produces a bright red fruit that resembles a strawberry plant in appearance and growing style. Indian mock strawberry typically grows on runners or stolons. It prefers to live in shaded, moist areas and can therefore be effectively controlled through exposure to heat. This plant also requires water to survive and can be eliminated by restricting its water supply.


Orchardgrass is a common perennial weed. In addition to residential properties, it commonly appears on (and affects) turf. Orchardgrass stands out for its blue-green color. Its seed head is also distinctive, which makes it easy to distinguish from other types of grasses, says North Carolina State University. Prevention is best to avoid the spread of Orchardgrass in the first place. This includes mowing regularly and applying a nitrogen-based fertilizer.


Virginia buttonweed is a perennial plant. It emerges during the summer or early fall. It can survive until the first frost or freeze. Virginia buttonweed is one of the harder weeds to manage, as it can grow very quickly. This weed ranges in hue from a yellow-green to a darker green. The flowers appear white and have a semi-waxy and shiny appearance. Repeat applications with herbicides may be needed for up to 4-6 weeks to get buttonweed under control.
