I differ.... High concentrations of Round Up will control the culprit onions. 
The problem is devising an economical method of applying high enough 
concentration over large areas. If the area is small a cotton glove, dipped 
in a high concentration mix, worn over a latex, applied to each onion works. 
This technique may be used to annihilate the onions within iris clumps. A 
medium nap paint roller dipped in high concentration solution works well for 
larger areas. Plus, this method has the added advantage of no spray drift.

Understand my horticultural practices are not for everyone. I grow iris and 
daylilies among weeds rather than separate from them. At the same time, I 
attempt to develop methods to control those undesirable flowers (weeds) 
should I ever decide to! Have used both the above methods successfully.
