How to control shiny geranium, from WA noxious weed control board: Individual plants and small infestations can easily be controlled by carefully hand-pulling, bagging, and putting in the trash. Make sure to remove its fibrous roots to prevent resprouting. Larger populations can be covered with sheet mulch - ideally overlapping pieces of cardboard covered with a thick layer of woodchips. Make sure to repeatedly monitor and control seedlings before they set seed.
shiny geranium found after "free" deliveries of tree choppings by two companies: R&R and Treesey. No idea from which delivery. Mostly in side yard, but have been pulling in the back yard/garden at 3190 Wallace Rd. NW, Salem, OR I'm pesticide free so looking for a method to get under control without synthetic pesticides. I do have one of those dragons, but have never used it.
