Thought creeping jenny was pretty until it became invasive. How do I get rid of it now. When I pull it out the roots go forever and it just comes back. PNW

  • Where is it growing now? Like, is it in your lawn or beds, or both?

  • Also, it appears that "creeping jenny" is used to refer to either Moneywort or Field Bindweed - do you know which one you're asking about?

Spray with glyphosate. Follow the instructions. Repeat as necessary.

  • If it's field bindweed, glyphosate will knock it back but won't kill it.

  • Peter - Once established, bindweed roots can grow up to 9 feet deep. RoundUp and 2,4-D will knock it back but will not kill it. If the bindweed is in lawn, the gardener can try 2,4-D/Dicamba at least twice a year. If it's in a garden, then constant pulling of new growth is probably best, so as not to kill nearby garden plants via drift. See: maine.gov/dacf/php/gotpests/weeds/factsheets/… for more info.
