dc.description.abstract In 4-year-old ginseng plants, removing flower buds increased leaf weight (fresh and dry), area, mass, volume, and thickness, and decreased leaf thickness. Removing flower buds did not affect ginsenoside levels. Although a shade plant, ginseng plants had leaf characteristics associated with a sunny habitat. en_US
