The effects of spraying ethephon on the flowering and cut flower quality of the non-branching type chrysanthemum (C. morifolium) cultivars with different flowering characteristics were studied. In almost all the cultivars that flowered in June-August, spraying with ethephon delayed flowering, and increased cut flower length and number of leaves. The longer the period between pinching and ethephon treatment, the more prominent the effects of ethephon became.
