Advice on PGR treatment candidates

flowerbug_2009January 9, 2009

I am planning a plant growth regulator test to treat landscape shrubs and groundcovers with the granular Cutless with the intention to reduce hand prunning. Because we need to get plants established this year and treat next year, we have plenty time to plan and make sure we have those plants that need the growth control the most included so that the informaiton generated from this study is useful to landscape professionals.

I have people requesting for Knockout rose and loropetalum growth control in landscape and Asian jasmin (already researched).

Any other groundcovers and shrubs that need 3 to 6 month growth control in a established landscape?

Many Thanks-

You might add Liriope spicata to your list!
