I cannot identify this silvery gray prostrate weed that grows about 2" tall in my bermuda grass lawn in Oklahoma. It used to be in just one small area, but is spreading. It smothers out the bermuda grass. I can kill it will 2,4-D, and can pull it up, but would like a name for it. Does anyone have a clue?

Looks familiar!

Possible family is antennaria, common name is pussytoes.....thinking it probably has pink flowers!
It is a native perennial growing in hot dry sunny areas....

Is it sticky to the touch? I had something similar in Kansas that I had to keep pulling up. Have no idea what it was but it tried to take over everything.
