    Does anyone have experience with atrimmec on flowering plants such as Crepe Myrtle, Lantana, or Bougainville? These grow fast and have very long blooming cycles. I wanted to know if and how Atrimmec would affect the blooming. Any input on effects on flowering would be appreciated.

    I have used atrimmec on a wide variety of plants ... never had any need to spray the bloomers, though. The label states that:
    "Atrimmec spray applied prebloom or during the flowering period of certain ornamentals reduces or eliminates bloom and prevents fruit set."
    It then goes on to list, specifically, ligustrum lucidum, multiflora rose, helleri holly, and olive.
