    I have been able to spray light solutions of glyphosate and not injure the Loriope.

    No more than 2oz. per gallon when over the top spraying in flowerbeds. I use 4oz. per gallon for spraying weeds/grasses in the beds otherwise.

    You would be surprised how well the light solution works around ornamentals.

    Fusilade was available at one time for this particular issue. Using diluted roundup can get really tricky.
