USGA Summary Points:Nine native and two non-native plant species were evaluated to provide ground cover under sprinkler irrigation. All plant species, except desert zinnia, emerged and established well under field conditions. Grasses and groundcovers germinated, established, and provided varied surface area coverage. Kurapia exhibited the most vigorous and aggressive growth when grown from plugs under optimal irrigation.
