AbstractRemoving 40, 70, and 100% of the foliage of tall bluebell plants for 4 consecutive years significantly reduced production, height, and stem number. Clipping during flowering and fruiting damaged plants more than treatment before flowering. Grazing systems for tall bluebell ranges should allow for deferment every two or three years to enable plants to maintain vigor and high production.
