AbstractResearches the resistance of five Florida native wildflowers to three herbicides (FreeHand, sulfentrazone, and mesotrione). The herbicides would be used to control weedy sedge species growing with the wildflowers. Mesotrione was very phytotoxic. FreeHand and sulfentrazone were also phytotoxic but the wildflowers fully recovered and flowering was similar to the untreated controls.
