Abstract/Contents:"The demand for appropriate alternative plant materials to the landscaping needs of the southwest United States necessitates the evaluation of low-input nativegrasses and alternative groundcovers in the low desert Arizona. Studies were initiated at three sites with various plant species: In May 2016 at Camelback Golf Club in Scottsdale, AZ, in June 2017 at Briarwood Country Club in Sun City West, AZ, and in June 2019 at Wigwam Golf Club in Litchfield, AZ. Treatment plots measuring 2.8, 3.3 and 6 m2 were arranged in a randomized complete block design with three or four replicates. Data for percent ground cover, and the overall plant quality evaluation for greenness, uniformity and vigor were collected. Data were analyzed using JMP ver.14.3 statistical software and means compared using Student's t-test. Nativegrasses and groundcovers performed at varying levels for emergence, establishment, providing surface area coverage, and overall plant quality throughout the growing seasons. Species like Kurapia (Lippia nodiflora), plains lovegrass (Eragrostis intermedia), alkali sacaton (Sporobolus airoides), alkali muhly (Muhlenbergia asperifolia), and blue grama (Bouteloua gracilis) remained green and attractive throughout the year at all locations. Big galleta (Hilaria rigida), spike dropseed (Sporobolus contractus), sand dropseed (Sporobolus cryptandrus), and buffalograss (Buchloe dactyloides) performed well for plant quality parameters during the spring and summer of the year. Kurapia was vigorous in growth uniformity as a groundcover."
