Our new home is literally covered with these! Backyard, front yard, circular beds!!!! I see babies popping up everywhere. And they are prickly too; got stuck by them Grumbling Grumbling
Got my DH to dig them up in one bed --- he said they are a pain to get up so he gave up - He's going to use Roundup. Anyone have other suggestions on how to get rid of these?

The whole neighborhood has them and foxtail ferns, too. ugh!!!

I hate asparagus fern too, and continue to try to eradicate it from my Florida landscape. It is NOT a real fern. I love most real ferns.
