Another wisteria question.

I just mowed down a large area of vinca major and surprise! There is a thick basketweave of wisteria vines all over the ground. Have been trying to dig them out, but its really hard. If I use roundup will the death juice go all the way back into the mother tree wisteria, which I don't want to kill? I will try to sever the long runners from the mom, but I may not get them all separated. Sneaky plant.

RE: Another wisteria question.

Can you start at the mother plant and cut everything heading down and sideways? IME you need an air strike to take out wisteria at all, and I doubt that hitting the offspring with RU will affect the mother plant, but if you want to keep the mother plant I can understand your concern. They're a bear to dig up,too. "Sneaky" is not the word that I would use but it does apply.
