What product could be used to spray weeds that come up thru ground cover
junipers without harming the shrubs (post emergent) ?

Ornamec from PBI Gordon is safe for juniper's & controls grassy weeds, but not broadleaf weeds. This works great to clean it up, then use something like Gallery & Treflan, or Snapshot to keep them from germinating in the first place:)

I've used Image around labeled junipers without problems and vantage is another to look at

Lontrel is OK as a spot directed application around tolerant residential ornamentals. It will affect polygoniums, asters, and legumes. Keep that it mind when considering what is tolerant and what wil be killed.

ornamec is crap, i used it to kill burmuda growing in some loriope and it killed the loriope and not the grass

Did you use the Fluazifop at 10 oz. per gallon to kill the grassy weeds.?
Was it the varigated variety because it can be sensitive to herbicides for some reason!
I have used it around mondo grass and big blue liriope with no ill effects, but if too strong it will become non-selective!
