Anybody know if the herbicide triclopyr is safe to use on irises? Seems
to have little known toxicity to birds, fish, bees & other insects,
mammals. From what I could find online, it's used mostly to kill woody
things in pasture. Other than that, I couldn't find a list of what
plants it does and doesn't harm.
