Evaluates the tolerance of several Florida native wildflowers (including Coreopsis lanceolata, Gaillardia pulchella, Ipomopsis rubra, Phlox drummondii, Rudbeckia hirta, Salvia coccinea) to the herbicide Imazapic. The major effect of imazapic on the wildflowers was stunting, although the severity of the stunting was species specific. For some species, wildflower tolerance was also affected by potting medium and seed source.
