Took these today, after the rain on Friday and Saturday.
This is the place for info on many plants.
Watch out for the milky sap when you pull it out. It can cause problems for people who are sensitive to it.
Well, weed killer does not, that's for sure. Just discovered a new set of growth on one which has been treated with Glyphosate for the last 5 years. Must have had a gallon of the undiluted stuff on it in that time.
How big are these white flies? Do they leave the plant in a cloud when the shrub us shaken. Or are they biggish and stay put?
Treatment would be different depending on which.
And if the dog urine does kill the Anemone, please let us know so I can borrow a dog so it can kill the this awful thug of a plant, as weed killer has little effect.
We must have been very lucky 18 years ago. We had to remove one which was attacking the drains. I dug down and got out every scrap of root which I could find and that did the trick. No suckers, nothing since
Oxalis cornuta makes bindweed look benign.
The graft union is where the root is joined to the variety of the Apple. It is somewhere near the base of the tree. Look for a swelling in the stem just above soil level. Anything which is growing from below that (and it sounds like you have) is a sucker. I'll bet these are the ones with the different coloured apples on them. you need to remove them , as close to the stem as possible. Any small bit of branch left could grow again.
Because it is still a baby. These shrubs/trees do not normally produce flowers until they are much older than 2.
