I’m in South Carolina and have Centipede grass that has some patches of Japanese clover growing in it.
Ideally, you would not want to put a fertilizer down when the lawn is getting ready to go dormant. If anything, an application could be made now in early October as your last treatment for the year. Tenacity would not be effective on lespedeza (japanese clover) at all as its not labeled for it. Southern Ag Atrazine is labeled for lespedeza and is safe for use on Centipede lawns if used as directed. Another option is Fertilome Weed Free Zone.
