Gaillardia pulchella is an annual wildflower with ornamental potential native to the South and Southern West part of the U. S. This experiment attempted to further describe the long day (LD) flowering requirement, approximate the length of the juvenility phase, and characterize apical events during floral initiation. Plants were transferred from short day to LD at various leaf numbers and the time to first flower was recorded from the onset of LD. A quadratic response described the data and indicated that a minimum of 19-20 expanded leaves were needed to flower most rapidly (49 days) once placed in LD. Histological results characterizing apical events will also be discussed.

Cornus florida L. floral development was monitored using standard paraffin histological techniques and light microscopy. Terminal buds (putative floral buds) were collected over 6 weeks from mature landscape trees located on The Univ. of Tennessee Agricultural Campus, Knoxville. Examination of samples taken at 3- to 7-day intervals revealed variations in development representing 1- to 2-week differences between florets in a single inflorescence, florets on the same tree and florets from different trees. Floral initiation occurred before July 19th in the 2 years of this study. Floral development followed typical angiosperm stages. Florets, although small, appeared morphologically mature by early September in both years.

The action of foliar-applied uniconazole, paclobutrazol, dikegulac-sodium, ancymidol, 6-BA, GA4+7, and 6-BA + GA4+7 On container–grown Photinia × fraseri was studied over a one year period. Vegetative growth habit was evaluated at three month intervals. Shoot dry weight and histological examination of stern anatomy in the apical meristematic region was conducted at experiment termination.
Several plant growth regulators, primarily uniconazole, 6-BA, 6-BA + GA4+7, and dikegulac-sodium, stimulated lateral branching. Linear increases in lateral branching occurred as application rates increased. High application rates of uniconazole and paclobutrazol created an asymmetrical growth habit and decreased dry weight accumulation.
