Creeping Jenny

Zone Sequim, Washington. Zone 8 | Deb Lindgren added on May 7, 2016 | Answered

Don't know the botanical name, but my "Creeping Jenny" has gotten away from me. I am not able to pull it all up because of arthritis. Is there anything I can spray on it to kill it?? It is great in hanging pots, but not so great on the ground!! Thanks

Creeping Jenny is extremely difficult to remove once it is established.

Pulling the plants along with herbicide application. In the lawn you can use 2, 4D to treat the weed.
In a flower bed you should use a herbicide that contains glyphosate or trifluralin.
Use these herbicides carefully and according to all package application directions.
