Abstract

Investigates the effects of plant growth regulators paclobutrazol (PBZ) and ethephon on the growth and flowering of Salvia coccinea 'Coral Nimph'. The authors conclude that spraying at 500 mg l-1 and 1000 mg l-1 ethephon just before flower budding caused the greatest decrease in stem length and increase in flower numbers.
