An experiment was conducted to study the effects of aqueous extracts of few ornamental plants viz. China box (Murraya exotica), Indian Medlar (Mimusops elengi), Parrot tree (Butea monosperma) Mussaenda (Mussaenda erythrephytta), Mast tree (Polyalthia longifolia) and Swamp tree (Thuja occidentalis) on the germination and growth of Yard long bean (Vigna unguiculata). Aqueous extract of Parrot tree plant extract showed the highest percentage of germination, shoot length and root length of yard long bean and lowest performance was found on aqueous extract of Indian Medllar. So, it may be concluded that aqueous extract of Parrot tree is good for germination, growth and development of yard long bean.
