Hi All,

I was wondering if someone could give me some advise please.

I have a weed growing in my garden that I've never seen before. It looks like a bunch of 4 leafed clovers but it has a really weird red vine that runs through it. 

Any ideas what it is? Will regular weed killer get rid of it? It covers a fairly large area of my grass at the moment.

I' tried attaching a picture but it doesn't seem to work.

Have a google for oxalis - anything like that?

Similar. The leaves aren't as big as the pictures on google and I haven't noticed any flowering.

I've uploaded some pictures to OneDrive. Links to view them are here. These were taken after I pulled up all the red vine like stuff. What ever it is, its some sort of creeper I think as the red vine stuff pulled up in lengths and ran very close to the ground- One of the pics shows a very small amount of it!AqIT0-q8_8ixg7Y-TGoh8fOzWkjloA!AqIT0-q8_8ixg7Y9lIuqGaxACwNdZg!AqIT0-q8_8ixg7Y_Odam-pE-Nf-Fwg


Looks like some sort of Cinquefoil posiibly



I agree with Bob     ... Potentilla reptans.  


It's some sort of Potentilla but  it looks a bit large leafed and furry for reptans
