What is the best way to erradicate the Mexican Petunias in my garden. I have been digging up the roots everytime I see new sprouts.
Thank you in advance for your advice.

I wish there were an easier way but as long as roots are in the garden, you'll see new sprouts. You can try cutting the sprouts at ground level and painting the stubs with Round Up. This product will kill anything it touches so be careful not to spray it or get in on any of your other plants. Eventually you'll kill out the Ruella. Good luck with your project!
