Which weed killer is suitable to target Oxalis in shade tolerant buffalo?

We laid a new lawn in October and unfortunately oxalis seems to be invading it slowly. Which weed killer will target the oxalis appropriately but is still safe for a shade tolerant buffalo lawn (ST91)? I think it is Lush - but I am not sure if you still manufacture the product.

Answer: Yates Buffalo Pro, formerly known as Lush Bindii and Broadleaf Weeder, will control creeping oxalis (see image below) in buffalo and other lawns.

If you are referring to oxalis, the bulb, you may have to carefully apply Zero glyphosate 490, a non-selective herbicide, to the leaves avoiding any contact with the surrounding grass.

Removing the weed by hand is another option but it is a tedious task and highly possible you may not pull up all of the bulb and surrounding bulbils thereby spreading the weed further.
