Medium_weed_on_pigface Identify and eradicate weed growing between Pig Face ground cover

Hi, I have a bed of Pig Face ground cover, but this bed keeps on getting a very invasive weed (looks a bit like morning glory). We haven't been able to get rid of it over the years. It keeps coming back. Glyphosate, Striking with Roundup Gel, pulling it out, roots and all (as far as it could be done), nothing helps. We have other beds of Pig Face ground cover, who do have no weeds at all. It now gets to the stage that we are unable to manually pull out the weeds. Firstly, can the weed be identified, and is there a way we can spray the whole area, killing the weeds but keeping the pig face healthy.

Answer: Hi Mariella,
Thank you for contacting Yates.
Yes it does look like a morning glory. We can confirm the species of the weeds if you could provide a picture of the flowers.

Unfortunately, we do not have a selective herbicide to control broadleaf weed growing in broadleaf ornamentals. Best to spray the vine only with a contact herbicide.

Try Zero Ultra Tough Heavy Duty Weedkiller Concentrate. Kills hard to kill weeds such as Ivy, Bamboo, Onion weed and more!

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
