Hello everyone. I was recently contacted by a local conservation district for suggestions on managing leafy spurge. We have never actively managed leafy spurge and I was wondering if anyone else has experience with it? Any recommendations would be appreciated!

Hi Shelby,
ISN's management is mainly working with Road Commissions to mow when it first starts flowering (now/a week ago) to prevent spreading by seed.  That said, in a past life with the Park Service I used the herbicide Plateau (imazapic) to great effect; took a year or two (small patch), but left the grasses alone.  It's not aquatic-approved.

We use Plateau here at the Boardman River Nature Center to keep spurge out of the gardens, but don't do any larger-scale treatments.
