Has anyone ever tried controlling poison ivy by using an aggressive ground cover that might choke it out? Will this work?

In shady areas I thought I would try some Obedient Plant and in full sun, Evening Primrose. Any other ideas would be appreciated.

Sweet potatoes will work surprisingly well.

PS love your footer!

Maybe its native colleague, Virginia creeper?

Possible downside: people tend to confuse the two, and I have occasionally been lulled to a false sense of security in a creeper patch, only to discover that there were some P.I. vines mixed in with it.

Thanks for the suggestions. Sweet potatoes? I wouldn't have thought of that in a million years, but I will try it.
I have some Virginia creeper already among the p.i. but it's outnumbered at the moment and I'm not sure if it will ever catch up.

OK, I'm willing to try the sweet potato treatment on poison ivy. I guess you can't just cut regular sweet potatoes up & plant them? That would be too easy. When to plant? How to care for them?
