I hope the boiling water works as I just dumped six huge pots of boiling water on a patch of lily of the valley to kill them off so I can plant daylily and some attractive ground cover that blooms all summer into fall. I tried digging up the area, root system and all and it was so matted, it was close to impossible to dig up. Crossing fingers. I hate LOTV-it should be outlawed for nurseries to sell in the northeast . It only blooms for a very short time, then by september it get rusty and ugly looking. Why would someone actually plant this thing.
