Will Scythe kill English Ivy?

I have a vast amount that nothing seems to kill. There are perennials in the area.


With English ivy, because it of the waxy leaves, we do recommend a brush killer. It is possible that it could kill the perennials if you are not spraying carefully. You will need to do a spot treatment with Bonide Poison Ivy and Brush Killer. Also, this product is for use on Bluegrass, Fesue, Rye, Bent, Bermuda, Bahia and Zoysia Lawns. Avoid application to St. Augustine or centipede lawns unless injury can be tolerated. Do not spray Carpet grass, Dichondra or desirable clovers. May cause temporary yellowing of some Bermudagrass turf. Do not exceed specified dosages for any area. Be particularly careful applying within the drip line of trees and other ornamental species. Avoid contact with exposed feeder roots of ornamentals and trees.
