i tried round up all of them i used all the chemicals on the market they might kill the one you spray but one comes up around it somewhere and even the "root killers " might kill 2-3 feet but thats it one shoots up right around it somewhere

|If you have an especially invasive plant that is large & you want to get rid of it you can cut it back to 3 or 4' ht. Then drill holes 2 or 3" straight down into the stems, pour Roundup in the holes. The plant will take the poison internally & it will kill any suckers also. You may wish to refill the holes after about 12 hours. Please be sure to cover each filled stem with tin foil secured with a twist tie so our lizard & insect friends don't get into the poison. I had a shooting star clerodendron that I had to treat this way. It was sending suckers out 30' away!
I sent this in as a tip --- it hasn't been published yet. Needs a photo --- maybe you can take the photo & co-op the tip.
I used Roundup Tough Brush Killer FULL STRENGTH. It's worth a shot. Try it.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
