Half dying evergreen

I can't see it well enough to see what it is but cut off the dead, it serves no purpose except as an entry for disease.

and it spoils your enjoyment

Bindweed or not?

This forum rarely fails to ID a plant eventually but we're not so good at getting rid of some of them.

I found some of this today after I'd hacked my way through blackthorn and alder suckers, got OH to take the Allen scythe through some long grass, pulled off loads of goose grass and ivy and there it was, looking very cheerful. Anything else would have been dead.

It loves a bit of moist soil and it's had that for about a year now. It will have been under water twice.

whether or not it's a weed depends who you ask Debs, I added a link to my previous post.

It's lovely but you've found its downside.

Weeding or weedkillers but I think it infiltrates which makes it difficult

But re-reading your original post I'm thinking this isn't like bindweed in that it climbs, just in the roots. Is that right?

Are they open flowers like a daisy, or tubular flowers or bell like?

It won't daisy. I think that's what Mike is checking. Lots of perennials will come back for a second, late, flowering if you cut back after the first bash. A paeony won't
