Spray applications of growth inhibitors to the foliage of ornamental plants have been known for many years to be effective. Sprays have been used to some extent, but possible hazards from spray drift to nontarget ornamental plants have led to the development of trunk banding and injection application techniques. However, foliar sprays, when safely used, are still the least expensive means of chemical growth reduction.
