A week ago I asked for an id on some bulbs found when digging up the front garden. They were misidentified as canna lily. I got suspicious when a bulb started to put on very unlike canna growth so I dug up one in the garden with leaves on it and found more bulbs .. no wonder they are so hard to kill! Now that I know how to get rid of them there is going to be lots of digging going on. Can someone tell me the name of this please? The leaves look bad because it was hit with weed killer. They are vines with thorns on them and tend to wind through and around plants.
