    Only tried glyphosate so far and figured I'd ask and save time. Also have an area in grass so not sure if I'll be able to kill it and not the turf. Any suggestions is appreciated. Thanks!

    Ive got the same thing. I've hit with everything. Speedzone, Quinclorac, Sulfatrozone, glyphosate. Kills it, but it comes back. Started popping up as far as 20 feet from the original location. Started as a bunch of vines we cleared off of a trelace. Been fighting it in my own yard the past 2 years.

    Best rule of thumb....

    Identify your target....that helps with control.

    So, what is it that you are trying to kill ??

    Are they tree seedlings?
    What trees are in your yard?
    Maybe ash?
    Or knotweed
    Location might help

    Both sites are yards I mow. One is beside a parking lot in bare dirt with no trees around and the other is beside a retaining wall that had some sort of big shrubs at one time and were cut down and now the old stumps remain.

    I think Hort101 meant what state/zone/general area are you in?
    Are there any flowers or pods on these weeds? I didn't see any from the pictures.

    I so not recognize this plant ? Sorry. However it might be around here too ? Hort is suggesting it might be a shoot off a larger established plant such as a tree. I see it happen around here and you will never kill it off unless you kill the parent.

    Keep us posted

    Have you tried something that contains Triclopyr. Looking at the pictures it looks to me like this is growing from old roots
