ENH1316: Use of Glyphosate and Herbicide Alternatives for Weed Control in Florida Landscape Planting Beds

Figure 4. Torpedograss (Panicum repens) infestation in dwarf yaupon hollies (Ilex vomitoria ‘Nana’). In this instance, glyphosate was used around the plants but could not be used over the top because it would kill the hollies, leading to the torpedograss growing up through only the foliage of the plants where glyphosate was not applied. In this instance, a graminicide such as sethoxydim (Segment® II), which is labeled for over-the-top use in this holly, could be applied over the top of the holly and could eventually control the torpedograss.
