Any idea what persistent weed this is?

See attached photo. I've tried numerous types of weedkiller and it continues to persist. Thanks!

    I think it's hypericum. Some varieties can be quite "tenacious" shall we say. 

    Round up should work or maybe SBK as it's for more shrubby growth.

    Hi johnnycambs. Its one of the Hypericums, possibly Hypericum x inodorum or St John's Wort. It is a real thug if not kept under control. That one looks a bit stressed as it is struggling through your paving.

  • Ah, thanks very much. I'll try SBK as that's not something I've tried yet.
