As your wildflowers become established, many types of aggressive grasses that were not successfully eliminated during the initial site preparation may appear. Johnsongrass, Crabgrass and Ryegrass are examples of unwanted grass varieties that can hide your wildflowers from view and compete with the area's overall beauty. We recommend Ornamec 170 herbicide to eliminate unsightly, protruding grasses without injury to your wildflowers, including emerging wildflower seedlings and transplants. Comes with complete instructions.
NOTE: This is a chemical, not a natural product.
Helpful Hint: Ornamec 170 is best applied with a pump-up type sprayer! Ornamec 170 is a selective post emergence herbicide for the control of annual and perennial grasses. Ornamec 170 does not control broadleaf plants or sedges (Nut grass). Used as directed, Ornamec 170 Grass Herbicide will eliminate unsightly, protruding grasses from your existing wild flower project without injuring transplants, emerging wild flower seedlings or established plants in full bloom.

Gallon Size Covers 15,000 to 20,000 square feet.
