    What have you all found that will remove Dollar Weed from Flower beds without killing the flowers and shrubs?

    I spray with round up or use a wiper and cut back on the irrigation

    How will it effect the plants in the bed? I always avoided spraying Image in beds for that reason.

    ditto on the image

    go to cmds.com and read it's label

    it is fine on most ornamentals.
    coleus and lagustrum are two that it will affect ( they are the only two that come to mind)

    Take a ziploc bag and put some Round Up concentrate in it. Let some of the dollarweed grow long enough to stuff inside the bag. Let them suck on that for awhile and see what happens...
