    You can eat the tubers of your rattlesnake weed…. They taste pretty good raw… I haven’t tried cooking them. I’ve successfully killed rattlesnake weed (stachys floridana) by covering the entire patch with old wall to wall carpet, and leaving it in place for a coupla years. Say good-bye to the plants that have been over-run by this menace, they can’t be salvaged. That wisteria looks like the native type… http://www.namethatplant.net/plantdetail.shtml?plant=1674 Might be worth keeping…

    Yep. Bobby is right I think. Here’s a good image of Fla Betony roots. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.caes.uga.edu/applications/publications/files/html/C867-11/images/C867-11-3.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.caes.uga.edu/publications/pubDetail.cfm?pk_id%3D7648&h=284&w=315&sz=119&tbnid=12aCL6Tde8CLVM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=100&zoom=1&usg=__ISp3akZYn99lw92K_MLmCP5-p28=&docid=Nl3W6qZGFKhTWM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=5BmHUdOZMpSk8QSmwYCgBw&sqi=2&ved=0CDwQ9QEwBA&dur=215

    The top one looks like Florida Betony and the other looks like wisteria. Both would be hard to eliminate. Try Roundup Concentrate mixed at 3 oz per gallon.
