>From my experience, and I have used it for about 5 years, it (POAST) is
quite safe to spray over the top of iris.  Remember, it will only kill
grass, most but not all, although quite a few species are listed on the
package.  Also, it is slow acting in cool weather and vice versa in warm
weather.  I use it mainly for Bermuda, and it does a good job on it.  I
highly recommend it.
