    Fusilade kills several different types of grasses and can be sprayed over many different ornamentals and shrubs without hurting them as long as it is mixed correctly. I've been using it for years.

    I'll second the Segment(sethoxydim). Fusilade, while more commonly used, has a long list of plants that it must not be sprayed over the top of due to phytotoxicity. Many landscapes in my area are composed of plants on that "do not apply" list.
