Q.Why Doesn’t Anyone Mention The Fact That Goji Berry Roots & Runners Are Invasive??

Zone Colorado Springs, CO | dknoller1 added on August 8, 2023 | Answered

I don’t know how to stop the Goji berry bush I planted. No one ever mentions the fact that they are invasive. How can I get rid of the roots & runners?? I am just sick that I will have these plants coming up all over my yard.

I asked the question about the Goji Berry running rampant. I want everyone to know that I always check for information about invasive plants. When I was checking out Goji berries (they are supposed to be very healthy for you) no one that sold them said they could be invasive. When I looked online every article told me how to take care of them but absolutely nothing about the fact that they can be invasive. I try very hard not to use herbicides but ... The plants are gone but I am still dealing with the roots/runners that were left. Please don't put Goji berries in the ground unless you don't care about them taking over.
