How do I kill flowers that keep coming back every year ,that spread li
Im pretty sure they are all so called pink blossoms,I had bought from Spring Nursery.
When we bought our current home there was a meter-square patch of horseradish. I hate the stuff and wanted to put something else there. I soon discovered how hearty it is. Our neighbour, a woman originally from rural Eastern Europe had a patch of a flowering plant I have come to know of as, 'Obedience Plant'. I didn't take notice of it. Resigning myself to a life of pulling horseradish leaves out I focused on pulling. Soon I noticed the obedience plant coming in and taking over. Now several years later, It is a full patch of obedience plant, only a few horseradish plants left. It seems when I pulled the leaves out it gave the obedience plant the opportunity to grow over the spot and suffocate the roots. The obedience plant has a shallow and slightly broad root-like a duck's foot. It offers a nice arrow shaped flower at the end of summer...but it does get rid of horseradish without glyphosate--which is very toxic.
Round Up will kill it but it is toxic so try dumping a gallon of vinegar with a bit of water over top and it is sure to die.
