USGA Summary Points:All plant species, except desert zinnia and buffalograss emerged, survived and established under field conditions at Briarwood CC. All of the native grasses exhibited varied growth rates to establish, provide surface area coverage, and overall plant quality throughout spring, summer, fall, and winter at Camelback GC. Kurapia, plains lovegrass, alkali sacaton, alkali muhly, and blue grama, in that order, performed well to maintain greenness during the fall, into winter, and into spring at Camelback GC. Overall observations showed that kurapia was very aggressive and vigorous as a groundcover. Desert zinnia seed did not germinate in the laboratory or in the field at both locations in both years. The evaluations at both sites demonstrated the requirement for an adequate water supply for the establishment and to achieve desirable characteristics of all plant species.
