I have been using it for years on Hosta.  I don't even worry if some are
starting to "come through"  Never bothers them.  I have, however, seen a
lot of damage to daylilies.  I usuall spray in early April, to get as many
of the weeds as I can.  this causes many little seeds to sprout, so I leave
time for a followup 10 to 12 days later.  this can be at a reduced
strength.  for the daylilies, it works well to take some "one and two
gallon " pots, and place them over the daylilies.  Hope this helps
