AbstractCharacterizes the morphological and physiological responses of four herbaceous perennials, including Lobelia cardinalis, to two drought cycles. The morphology of L. cardinalis was not affected by drought. However, L cardinalis did not become more water use efficient by the end of the second drought cycle although the other three species did.
