Dianthus caryophyllus ‘Cinnamon Red Hots’, which is a day-neutral plant that perpetually develops flowers under most environmental conditions ( Bunt and Cockshull, 1985 ). In contrast, other perennial plants such as Coreopsis verticillata ‘Moonbeam’ do

flowered under 9- and 16-h photoperiods after a 15-week treatment at 5 °C (Cameron et al., unpublished data). Because photoperiod did not influence flowering percentage or flowering time, D. gratianopolitanus ‘Bath's Pink’ was classified as a day-neutral

with a day-neutral plant, i.e., a plant whose flowering is insensitive to daylength ( Taiz and Zeiger, 2006 ), a growth regulator would be applied to the crop that would induce flowering. The entire crop would uniformly be flowering and ready for
