Ive had good luck spot spraying the open areas with amitrol and mecoprop. The amitrol really likes to follow the roots and kill further than the contact plant. Casaron also seems to have a fair effect on ht's in ground covers. Amitrol takes forever for knock down so thats why the mecoprop. With straight amitrol you will be looking at those dying ht's for weeks on end, with the mecoprop, it will knock them down in about 10 days while still giving full benifits of the amitrol. Mecoprop just kills off the top growth while the amitrol kills back a lot of the roots too.
