Re: Worried about killing flowers and palms the same time as weeds/grass- Spectracide

if it's a "non-selective" herbicide it will potentially kill any plant it touches do extreme care should be used in areas with lots of plants you do NOT want to kill. if you have lots of seedlings or desirable plants close together you might want to "hand weed" around them instead. READ THE LABEL carefully before you apply so that you can use the chemical safely for both the plants and you. unless the label says otherwise, use "protection" during application: rubber gloves and boots, glasses/goggles for your eyes, long pants and shirt to protect yourself from exposure to the chemical while you use it. hope this helps. good luck.
