We have used Round Up for a number of years, with few problems.  As
Clyde says , Hostas , even when the leaves are unfurled, are quite
tolerant .  Daulilies, and many other prennials, however are not!  We
keep some old nursery pots, stackes up, and before spraying, place them
over any plant that has foliage showing ( even Hostas).  Sure that
leaves a little space around the plant to weed, but that is a smell
price to pay.
