    Anyone have any ideas how to get rid of it? It is in our garden, yard, and flowers. Grows in the ditches like crazy! We have been fighting it for years and haven't found a way to get rid of it.

    Thanks

    The only thing that seems to work is pulling it by the roots (of course I don't use chemicals, so there may be something toxic that works) In certain places I let it grow-- the flowers are quite pretty (similar to a morning glory) but it can definately be a pain...
