My yard has several colonies of lesser celandine (ficaria verna) that I'm working to get rid of. What are your best recommendations?

As you must already know, it is very difficult to control lesser celandine. You may have to battle it for many years. There are two approaches digging it up making sure to remove the tuberous roots or spraying it with glyphosate (or a combination of both). Please see the following information on our website,
