Keeps plants hydrated! The #1 selling anti-transpirant in the lawn and garden industry for more than 60 years, Wilt-Pruf® prevents plants from drying out during harsh winter conditions, transplant stress, windburn, and droughts. Wilt-Pruf acts as a protective coating, holding in moisture on plant foliage and stems, substantially reducing water loss during periods of plant stress. 


      Wilt-Pruf is purified organic pine resin to which emulsifiers and stabilizers are added. 


      Wilt-Pruf's active life is one season: 1-2 months during spring/summer, 3-4 months during fall/winter.


      Just mix, spray, and let dry.


      Wilt-Pruf can be used almost any time of year, whenever excess transpiration is a concern. Potential uses include protection from transplant shock, shipping, freezing roots, soaring temperatures, desiccating winds, and drought conditions.


      The coating is clear and flexible and dries to form a transparent and flexible protective coating without interfering with plant growth or materially affecting respiration, osmosis, or photosynthesis. This process continues until all the layers have worn off which takes 3-4 months depending on climatic conditions.


      For use on evergreens, boxwoods, azaleas, hollies, laurels, rhododendrons, roses, and more.


      Proudly manufactured in the United States.

      Common Questions

      How does Wilt-Pruf work?

      Wilt-Pruf creates a protective coating, sealing in moisture on foliage and stems, reducing water loss during periods of severe plant stress.

      When should I apply Wilt-Pruf?

      Wilt-Pruf has three main use cases; summer drought, stress and shock, and winter kill protection. You can apply Wilt-Pruf any time so long as it doesn't freeze on foliage when it's applied and it has 3-4 hours of daylight (not necessarily sunlight) to dry. We recommend applying every 1-2 months during spring/summer months, and every 3-4 months during winter like conditions.

      How do I apply Wilt-Pruf?

      For our RTUs: Shake the bottle, spray the tops and bottoms of stems and leaves to run off, and let dry for 3-4 hours of daylight (not necessarily sunlight). For Concentrates: shake concentrate, add Wilt-Pruf to water, stir concentrate into the water, use any pressure type trombone, pump, or power sprayer (except a hose end), and spray the tops and bottoms of stems and leaves to run off, and let dry for 3-4 hours of daylight (not necessarily sunlight).

      Can I apply Wilt-Pruf on indoor plants?

      Yes! Although we recommend spraying them outside to prevent or in a similarly safe location to prevent Wilt-Pruf from getting on unintended surfaces (e.g. counters, tables, walls)

      What happens if I overspray Wilt-Pruf?

      If you overspray, allow product to dry and powder off over time
