The Q&A Archives: Invasive Plants

Question: I have planted packysandra and now I am trying to kill it out because it is too invasive. How can i accomplish this?

Answer: Pachysandra is usually planted as a low maintenance, evergreen ground cover because it is able to outcompete weeds and other plants, and, once established, it is tough and able to care for itself for the most part. It is also able to grow in places where lawn grass or other plantings might not survive, or might not thrive well enought to look good. To remove it, you could try digging it out by hand. Alternatively, you could use an herbicide containing glyphosate. Be sure to read and follow all of the label instructions.
