I am removing a dracaena from my yard. If I leave some of the roots in the soil, will they regrow? If so, what type of poison should I spray? In their place I am planting camellias. If I have to spray dracaena roots, how long should I wait before planting camellias? Thank you.

If you want to remove the plant, I would recommend digging up as much of the root system as possible to ensure that it does not regrow. You can treat the area with Roundup but keep in mind that you will need to let the soil sit for 1-2 weeks to let the Roundup break down so that it does not kill any new plants you put in the soil.
