Native spiderworts and "Tropical Spiderwort" are not the same thing!

An introduced species Commelina benghalensis, sometimes referred to as "spiderwort", has become an invasive pest in many southern states in the U.S. Â It is a very difficult plant to control or eliminate from sites once it gets established.Â It is resistant to Round-Up (glyphosate) herbicide.
What I have is Tropical spiderwart.also called a asiaticÂ dayflower. akso the spreading dayflower . .Ilike that better I am growing DayFlwers not spiderwart weed.
It is a insecticide resistant plant! If a weed roundup could kill it and it doesn't!
It can be a menace to other crops and flora so I will be good to Mother Nature and grow mine in large decorative pots it has flowers below ground too tiny white ones which look like a swollen node.
It has four different seeds!large and small abpve ground as wall as large and small below ground seeds!
The stem is ascending,can extend its self more than 1mÂ and can reproduce its self from rooting nodes
