Irrigation effects on growth and visual quality of three ornamental grass species
Ornamental grasses have become ubiquitous in the landscape and are popular with consumers and industry professionals because of their favorable low-input cultural characteristics. These characteristics include low water and nutrient requirements, decreased maintenance, fast growth and few disease and insect problems. A study conducted at Colorado State University (Fort Collins, CO) examined the effects of four irrigation levels (0, 25, 50 and 100% of potential evapotranspiration (ET)) on growth and visual quality of three species of ornamental grasses (Panicum virgatum 'Rotstrahlbusch' (Rotstrahlbusch ...
