Title:
Propogation and Nursery Production Studies With New Arid Land Species
Author:
Miller, W. B.; Bailey, D. A.; Palzkill, D. A.
Issue Date:
1988
Publisher:
College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ)
Journal:
Turfgrass and Ornamentals Research Summary
Abstract:
Several species of low -water requiring species have been successfully propagated through vegetative and sexual means. Auxin treatments and bottom healing were beneficial in many cases. Development of improved propagation schemes, and subsequent growing practices, will increase grower success and profitability, eventually increasing availability of new low water use plants to the Arizona consumer. The long-term result of this work will be the availability of new, low-water use plant species which may be utilized by the homeowner and landscape contractor. The addition of new and exciting plant materials to the consumer market, it is hoped will accelerate the use of arid species in the Arizona landscape, resulting in water savings throughout the state, particularly in urban areas.
