Ajuga spreads with runners so my guess would be a shovel and a lot of hours.

This is an invasive groundcover with runners, not easy to eradicate.

Yeah, I knew what it was, but I went looking for a pic so others could know too.

Here are your control methods:
Mechanical - Mow, cut back, dig, pull, dead-head, cut down, controlled burns maybe.

Chemical - Paint foliage or freshly cut stem with glyphosate. (Roundup) Hack it and squirt it.

Educational - Don't plant it, and tell others why they shouldn't plant it either.

Have never had the pleasure of trying to remove this.

And just like a woman, you give "way" too much info for a "man" to understand:blush: :blush: :blush:
I give the roundup a try.

Thanks for the help,
Pete

If it's spreading on a lawn, can you use Weed-B-gone? Hate to kill some good grass with Roundup.

Try some of that round up that kills ONLY weeds and leaves the grass alone.
