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.

Phew. The plant with the red pointy bit at the top is a trillium. The leaves, sepals and petals are all in threes. I always wanted a really good red one. Mine is kind of wishy washy, but it grows so slowly, I havn't the heart to chuck it out.

 The old potting shed has a wisteria macrobotrys growing on it. The trunk is enormous. I love the melted candle effect that old wisteria have. The buds are there but its not open yet, about two weeks I would think. There are a number of old wisteria on site. If I lived nearer I would have a season ticket and go every few weeks through the season.
