How do I get rid of wild morning glory?
Rate This FAQ
This weed is correctly called field bindweed. It is a very difficult and persistent problem. The plant propagates by seed and underground rhizomes. Early “weeding” of young plants reduces and sometimes eliminates their growth. However, established plants with a deep root system are extremely hard to control and a broadleaf weed killer should be applied during the blooming season or in the fall after the first frost.
Recommendation: Grow a vigorous lawn to compete against bindweed, or apply mulch 3 inches deep over it. Occasionally pull sprouts or spot-treat with perennial-rate glyphosate.
