Question: I have bermudagrass in my Asian jasmine. How can I get rid of it without killing the jasmine?

Answer: Although it hasn’t been listed on the product’s label, many commercial landscapers and home gardeners alike have used one of the glyphosate sprays to kill the bermuda. As long as you wait until the jasmine has taken on its leathery, dark green summer color, the spray doesn’t seem to bother it. Try a small area first, however, to be certain you like the results, because you accept all responsibility when you use a product in a way that is not prescribed on its label. Use a hand applicator so you can position the spray more accurately. Keep it away from areas that do not have any bermudagrass.
