Evaluates the effects of using imidazolinone herbicides (imazethapyr, imazapic, and imazaquin) to control weeds in the establishment of Rudbeckia hirta, Echinacea purpurea, Monarda punctata, and Liatris spicata. Wildflower response to the herbicide treatments was variable and appeared to be influenced by the level of weed interference.
