    Is there any product available that will kill the weeds and grass that is in the middle of Liriope without harming the Liriope?

    Ornamec & fusilade are one in the same. It is mostly used for the removal of bermuda from zoysia of fescue grasses. Y ou didn't specify what kind of grass it is. Try www. pbigordon.com for a over the top product. Really for me i use round up, the liriope is hardy enough it will bouce back.

    I would like to use Ornamec this year. You that have used it, can you spray beds with annuals and perennials?
    I know it will not harm most shrubs but was wondering if it will harm wave petunias and other flowers such as this?

    KerryB- I have used it, but only in ornamental grass beds with a few shrubs. I used it to kill Bermuda in Liriope (sp?). I had to do two applications but the Bermuda never grew back.
  8. My experincewith bermunda, if activitly growing, you can't kill it with round-up, It may look like it, but it comes back.
