Hello Terminator20

RoundUp in it's various forms and concentrations is registered for use to control certain weeds. It is generally regarded as a non-selective herbicide, but it does have its limitations. The label and booklet that comes with the concentrated product will state which plants it is registered to control (it will affect) as well as if multiple applications are required for irradication. You may be required by your local jurisdiction to carry a current Pesticides Applicator or Plant Exterminator license in order to purchase it and/or if you intend to apply it and/or ANY registered pesticide on property which you do not own.

A blanket application in a garden bed in which desirable plants reside will usually result in the loss of both the weeds and the desired plants. Check the list to see what's affected...

The short answer is that Roundup will kill just about any green plant.
