: i have well established liriope that comes back every year but the weeds are getting worse & worse and are very difficult to pull because they are so deep in the plants. i do heavily mulch the areas surrounding each plant. can i spray any weed killer in the liriope that will kill the weeds and grass but not harm the liriope? thanks

Hi Melanie,

Not that I know of. My suggestion is to dig up each clump and either separate them so you can get to the weeds or cut them and discard the weediest parts.

I realize this might be a lot of work, but you could do a section at a time. I too have a lot of lirope and sometimes I feel like I have too much when I have to cut it back in the spring.
