Abstract

The overtopping responses of two Polygomum species (P. sagittatum and P. hydropiperoides) were studied in greenhouse experiment. Internode length of both species increased with shade density. The vine-like P. sagittatum climbed on adjacent plants as it elongated under shade, showing an ability to elongate beyond self-supporting heights.
