    wild violets in fescue lawn

    By Don on 06/25/2017

    I tried many products and nothing would kill the purple violets taking over my yard. I order Spurge Power and after spraying the violets started to fade. That was 2 weeks ago. I now need to do a small application to get the ones I missed.

    Weed killer

    By Matt on 06/19/2016

    Well it doesn't kill the grass in my yard it does kill everything else though my problem was clovers and creeping charlie thissels and dandy lions. Knocked them all down after a few applications of little over 3 ounces per gallon spray jug. Recommend 2 ounces per gallon. Anyway it did kill my flowers and other plants I had near so you will have too watch out for the over spray. Otherwise it doesn't work that fast, it takes about 2 days to see them die and then I resprayed in a week. Long story short use approx 4 ounces per gallon and it will do the job it's too bad the product only comes in a small bottle and the other is just too much money. I am from Madison Wi.

    Spurge killer

    By Steve on 09/18/2013

    Verified Purchase

    Hey, it works! (But it also kills a tiny bit of grass around it already not drowned out by the spurge). For 2 years I was told by a Nursery that I had to apply a powder mixture that would keep spurge seeds from germinating the following year. It was a joke, I might as well have applied fertilizer to the &%$# spurge. Spurge Power works!

    So far so good!

    By George on 06/14/2017

    Using to control spurge on centipede. This stuff is killing the spurge with minimal effect on the grass. Every previous year I have watched spurge take over my lawn and nothing else has seemed to affect it. Highly recommend!

Q
I live in Phx… Can I apply Spurge Power when it's 110'. Every spurge killer I have seen has to be applied

under 85'. Is that the case with Spurge Power? Thank you

A
You would want to apply Spurge Power when soil temps are not over 85 degrees.  This is because plants that are heat stressed will not absorb the product as readily so it would not work very well.  If you can apply it later in the day when temps could be closer to the recommended temp you could do so.

Q
How soon after applying Spurge Power can you replant shrubs in same soil?

Want to kill wild violets. What is the optimum temp for best results? do plants need to be actively growing? Zone 6 b

A
Spurge Power is a post emergent to be applied to actively growing weeds like Wild Violet. You would want to apply when soil temps reach 55 degrees and not over 85 degrees. Please wait 4 or more weeks after application to replant.
