    I tried to Post A pic, but it was too big.

    After further investigation, I am not dealing with suckers, but seedlings!

    They seem impervious to Round Up Pro Dry!
    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Not sure what plant you are talking about. But here in Fla. I use Remedy--Garlon 4 for palmettos. 1 oz remedy and 3 oz hort oil to one gal. Just spray the leaves to run off and becareful not to get any thing else in the area that you donot want to die. Remedy tranlocates in the ground and through the roots so becareful of large trees near by. also try to pick a dry time to prevent leaching or run off. It takes a while to work so don't retreat too soon.
