Ortho Weed B Gon MAX Plus Crabgrass Control Ready-Spray is a spray herbicide commercially available in many hardware and garden centers. The chemical spray attaches to the end of a garden hose for drenching weeds.

Significance

Ortho Weed B Gon Max is labeled for use against 225 herbaceous weeds including crabgrass, dandelions and clover while leaving turf grass intact.

Prevention/Solution

In flower beds, the danger of treating weeds comes from chemical drift. A breeze or splash of chemical from treating weeds can land on flowers and kill them as well.

Prevention/Solution

Because many ornamental flowers are similar in structure to the herbaceous weeds that Weed B Gon Max kills, such as buttercups, there is a good chance that Ortho Weed B Gon MAX will kill the plants in your flower bed.
