The Q&A Archives: Weeds in Liriope

Question: I have a lot of liriope in my yard. This past summer, I had so many grassy-like weeds that I could not separate from the liriope and pull out. Is there a product I can apply that will kill the weeds and not the liriope?

Answer: There are two products that I am familiar with - Image and Acclaim. Postemergent herbicides are labeled for several species of liriope (i.e., gigantea, muscari and spicata) or mondo grass (i.e., japonicus, jaburan, planiscapus), but some are not so be sure to read the herbicide label to determine if the liriope or mondo grass species you are growing is listed on the label. Best wishes with your liriope.
