Nicki -- From those who have used it, I hear that Poast is an effective
all-grass killer and can be safely applied over established iris. (The
"established" is my own caution. I am leery of applying any kind of
killers over new transplants or seedlings.) However, I have given up on
Poast after being unable to find it or to order it through nurseries in
this area. Instead, I have used Basagran, and killed all the grasses,
including the worst pest (for me) -- yellow sedge (which was NOT killed
by Vantage), with no harm to the established irises. I recommend it.
