    The only problem is that 24d is not labled for landscape beds, or use around landscape plants.:hammerhead:
    I would not use 24d near landscape beds.
    I use roundup pro at the higher strength and it works good.

    the problem with morning glory is not a lot of leaf surface to bond to, so a surfactant is a must to make the most of what you DO put down! R-up works just fine, as long as it's able to stick to the leaf, the reason you saw r-up pro mentioned with it's surfactants. For tough, tight areas, I like a nitrile glove with a carwash mitt over it, spray the mitt, wipe the plants. Nothing works like rubbing the plant on small leafed weds in beds. cheap, effective solution and you will get the kind of results you are after. After they die out, get a good pre-emergent into the beds, like prepair or snapshot and you can manage that problem for the longer term.
