    Thank you so much for this. I left my home in the care of a tenant and when I returned to take it over, where my back yard used to be was a sea of 4-5 foot tall zombie weeds from hell with burrs all over them – the ‘gone to seed’ stage of the creeping hellflowers. I mean bellflowers.. Not a blade of grass was left behind. I put on safety gear and took out all the weeds and put black landscape fabric over the entire yard for 2 years. Pulling up the fabric, things look promising… but now this spring I am seeing that the freaky creeping zombies have made a giant network of tuber-like roots and are coming up in the FRONT yard. I am going to try your newspaper and mulch solution in the front. That sounds like it might work. Thank you so much for the info!!! GUH these things are terrible.

    personally, i dig patches out of the lawn with a garden fork- get the fork as far down as possible, flip the whole thing over on newspaper or plastic,so i can start at the thicker roots and work my way (getting every little piece of root out) up to the surface of the sod. put most of the soil back in place, severely overseed with grass seed and tamp it all down.
    the flowering stalks have pointier leaves and are easy to identify so i pull those up until i have time to dig. it is a horrible plant that some twits keep as garden plants.
    i love the lasagna idea and will try that in a few spots this year.
    thanks for that tip 🙂

    Thanks for this very informative article. Yes, this plant must be destroyed. I don’t know where it came from, or who gave it to me, but this year it is everywhere. My husband and I have been digging for days. It’s been a very wet Spring, so I’m sure all the rain is helping. I’m in Upstate NY near the Thousand Island area, even our Winters can’t kill this very invasive creature. UGH!!

  • Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such excellent information being shared freely out there.

    I’m already plotting to kill this hellflower next Spring/Summer. We dug for days, but I know it will return. Again, this article gives me hope. A bit of praying wouldn’t hurt either.
