We are having a problem with our Creeping Myrtle...or as we call it "thrift" We have this grass type weed that is taking over the flower bed. We are not sure what if anything we can spray in the area so to not kill off the flowers that we have. I have pictures but I am unsure how to load them on this site.

Please help!!

I still remember how and have a long handled Japanese weeder that makes the job a lot easier. Al
