Effective height control of 'Georgia' Easter lilies with A-Rest



Effective height control of 'Georgia' Easter lilies with A-Rest



Ohio Florists' Association Bulletin (576): 2



Cold-stored potted bulbs of Lilium longiflorum Georgia, brought under glass on 5 January, were treated twice with A-Rest at 0.5 mg a.i./plant when the shoots were 4, 8 or 12 inches tall. The A-Rest was applied as either a foliar spray or a soil drench. All treatments reduced plant height, particularly when applied to 4-inch-tall shoots. The greatest and most uniform height reduction was obtained with sprays.
