    Will weedar 64 hurt liriope if sprayed directly on it? I know it is for broadleaf control but I was making sure before I went and sprayed. I did not know if liriope or monkey grass would be affected. I have a flower bed with nothing but liriope and thought that this would be the easiest allternatative.

    Weedar 64 is straight 2-4,D and shouldn't effect Liriope, However I have never tried it. Green Liriope is Roundup Ready so I just use Roundup to control weeds in Green Liriope. Variegated Liriope is an other story, Roundup will kill it. Yes Roundup can be used as a select herbicide on more things than most people realize.

    Thanks for the reply, I have the varigated variety and did not think it would hurt it.
