Unlike herbaceous plants that die back to the ground in winter, woody ornamentals remain aboveground year-round.

In the landscape, woody ornamentals serve many essential functions. 2,4-D may volatilize and cause minor leaf injury when applied near desirable woody plants. Using amine formulations of 2,4-D minimizes the possibility of injury from volatilization.
