    I have been fighting Morning Glory in English Ivy beds. Pull it and it keeps coming back. I read in a brochure that Quicksilver would control this. Wondered if it would discolor or kill the Ivy. Anyone ever try this before?

    I would look at the Lontrel label or call Lesco and ask them.

    I sprayed about 4k of an ornamental Ivy with Lontrel that had poison ivy all through it and it smoked it!

    Quicksilver is HOT, but I am not sure if it would take out the IVY or not. I would think so myself as it does a number or ground ivy and wild violet for me in lawns.

    Help is on the way. You can use "Drive". Take a careful look at the label. Look under "Broadleaf Weeds Controlled" . You will find Drive controls bindweed and wild morning glory, plus various types of clover. Include a surfactant like methylated seed oil or crop oil.
