Last year a plant mysteriously grew in my flower bed, it smelled strongly of mint and the bee's loved it. I left it growing. I soon found out that it will take over your garden so I removed it. This spring little offshoots of this plant all over my flower bed! I've pulled and pulled, sometimes the roots are over a foot in length. How can I get rid of this plant? I've tried weed killer and all the pulling but it keeps coming back!! Help!

Can you post a picture of the plant so we can identify it (unless someone else knows which one you mean). Could it be pennyroyal, which is in the mint family? I Googled Pennywise and all I got was results for cannabis.

Lame fact lol. Pennywise was a clown in Steven Kings book and movie "IT".

Someone probably named their cannibus after it. Not worth reading in my opinion and clowns are scary!!

My apologies, it is Pennyroyal. I pulled them all today, but they will be back tomorrow so I'll get a pic then.
