Taking over

I have a problem with variegated nettle - it's taking over and the only resolution I can see is a heavy dose of round-up! It's killing off my rose bushes, mums, etc. Help!

Hi, Well if you can't attack this plant mechanically by hand pulling or hoeing, then your only answer is going to be to use Round-up on it. Applied properly, the herbicide won't hurt your other plants.
