Pachysandra and Queen Anne's lace

Hello All
Sorry if this has been discussed before. I did a Google Groups search and don't see it.
I'm renting a carriage house on a glorious four-acre property with horses, stones walls, split-rail fences, etc. With deer and shade trees around, there's lots of pachysandra beds. What a beautiful plant! I love the shape and texture of the leaf. But one of the beds has been invaded by Queen Anne's Lace, which really is overpowering the pachy. Is there any way of eliminating the Queen Ann's Lace without killing off the pachysandra? I've started pulling the Queen Anne. Actually, I enjoy doing it. But it's hard getting the roots, and I expect it'll grow back quickly.
Also, I put some pachysandra in a hanging pot and hung it from under one of the carriage house eves. I was thinking of doing more since it's a nice touch having the same plant hanging in pots that also on the ground. It also looks great in a pot. But has anyone ever tried keep pachy as a potted plant? Will this work, or will the pachy and its runners quickly overrun the pot and make a mess? Figured I'd ask before do any more.
Thanks.
Regards, Anthony Giorgianni

use pre-emergent to stop Queen seeds from germinating. pachy comes back from roots. Ingrid

Thanks Ingrid
Does that mean this is best done in April? And will the pre-emergent damage the pachy leaves that are still there when you apply it (and the pachy grows back). Or will the pachy simply be unaffected?
Thanks again.

pre-emergent only affects germination of seeds. nothing else. and yes, good to apply it when seeds are germinating. this may be different for different kinds of weeds, best to google for that info. BTW, here is summary of pre-emergents. http://www.lebturf.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.TechnologyDetail&id 07&typeid=7 Ingrid
