Abstract

Assesses the effects of plant growth regulators on plant height and tiller number of six ornamental grass and sedge species, including Muhlenbergia capillaris. Trinexapac-ethyl and benzyladenine suppressed the height of grass species but did not affect tiller number. Uniconazole did not have an effect on M. capillaris.
