Are you refering to Round Up?  It's fairly hard to kill daylilies with 
Round Up.  Even if you use full strength Round Up on daylilies and 
really spray them well you will set them back for a year and they will 
look kind of yellowish, but they will come back next year looking as 
nice as ever.  If you want to kill daylilies with Round Up you need to 
spray them about three of four times with about 3-4 oz of Round Up per 
gallon of water, and then spray them again next year.  You can also 
spray daylilies with a mix of 2,4-D and Fusilade 2000 without any 
problem as long as you don't use a 2,4-D concentration that's 10 times 
higher then recommended, and even then the daylilies recover.  I 
haven't tried 2,4-D on hostas, but I did kill some potted hostas with 
a light spraying of Round Up.  The 2,4-D kills the broadleaf weeds 
while the Fusilade 2000 kills the grasses.
