Star of Bethlehem is a beautiful white flowering plant that can either be looked at as a gorgeous addition to your garden, or a pervasive and nasty threat that you need to get rid of. The trick is that either way you look at the plant, it is exceptionally aggressive. While getting rid of Star of Bethlehem can be a little difficult, it is something that you should know how to do if you have any in your garden.
When you have finished all the steps for getting rid of Star of Bethlehem, there is still one step that you cannot forget. This step is the same one that you will take with any excessively aggressive plant, keep an eye out. Just because you think you have removed the plant doesn't mean that you have, so keep an eye out for any signs of resurgence, and remove it and the dirt around it for at least one foot around and six inches deep. As always, dispose of the soil and plants properly so that there is no further contamination.
