jaggers in my flower bed

Asked July 31, 2014, 1:17 PM EDT

Hello, I have been getting this jager weed in my flower bed. I have used round up, salt, Clorox and have tried everything anyone has told me to use. This particular jager has spider like roots that grow horizontal and keeps sprouting up from those roots. Its impossible to dig them out because of this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello and thanks for using the Ask an Expert System.

I am sorry, but I cannot identify the weed invading your garden from your description. I recommend that you contact the Penn State Master Gardeners Hotline in your county. Someone there should be able to identify the plant. You can contact the Washington County, Penn State Master Gardener Hotline.
