Will Solitaire Herbicide have any adverse affect on St. Augustine?
I used it on a mixture of St Augustine and centipede and the Augustine turn brown. Will it kill the St. Augustine?
St. Augustine grass is very fragile and is not on the Solitaire label as a turf grass that it can be used on. It may or may not kill the St. Augustine, but St. Augustine will typically turn brown for a short time if it is not healthy and will definitely brown if it is distressed in any way. Only time will tell, but in the future it is very important to make sure your type of grass is on the herbicide label you want to use.
