Can you identify this weed/plant and possibly tell me the best way to kill it? It's spreading both in my grass and under a large bed of pine trees. A MSU rep at the Northville Farmers Market recommended I submit this. Thank You!
Wayne County Michigan weed issues
Hello, Your picture looks like a weedy plant called Helloborine. We have had a few questions here in Michigan about it. Here is a response written earlier for this weed. If you have more questions, please write back. Thank you-------
In my landscape beds, I have had some success with cutting off the plant (leaving 1-2" of stem) and painting the remaining stems with an undiluted glyphosate product (such as Roundup). When doing this, I make sure to wear the appropriate protective gloves and use a small paint brush to paint on the product right after it is cut so the orchid wound is still open and susceptible to the chemical. Hope that helps!http://msue.anr.msu.edu/news/homeowners_battling_a_weedy_orchid_invading_lawns_and_flowerbeds
