poison ivy in bed of day lilies

mclemAugust 17, 2006

Just saw the poison ivy last night. Yikes, and the area gets a good amount of afternoon sun.

I would use Roundup, but the poison ivy is growing within a bed of day lilies (also daffodils and bearded iris in the bed) so I don't want to kill off the stuff I planted, just the stuff I didn't plant.

I have a feeling a bird brought it to my yard because the location is just below my gutters.

I read about getting rid of Morning Glory by sticking the plant in a cup of Roundup, do you think this would work in this situation? That is after getting a biohazard suit.

I would use a plastic bag pulled up over my arm. Pull the ivy then invert the bag and throw in the trash.
