Where do you live, Pete.

Glyphosate is suggested for perennials with deep roots because it is translocated within the plant. It is systemic as opposed to contact. It travels to the roots. The difficulty is in getting it to sink in to a plant with a high level of silica. This is achieved by breaking up the stems by trampling on them or bashing with a rake.

 have a look at the RHS website, I prefer to take their advice rather than wikipedia.

It doesn't show up , but it was spitting with rain for most of it. We made a dash for the cafe when it rained heavy, and decided not to go to Kiftsgate. The men had had enough by then, and wanting a snooze in front of a fire.

 Lathyrus vernus. There were quite a few patches of this near the cedar.
