Abstract/Contents:"Ornamentals in many municipal areas are major urban irrigation water consumers. As water conservation has becoming a high priority in municipal areas, cultivate new ornamental plants with greater water efficiency will meet the requirement of future urban development. Similarly, Texas and similar semi-arid/arid regions is running low on municipal water supplies. An estimated 47% of all urban water consumption in Texas is used for irrigating urban landscape ornamentals. However, most of these are exotic, introduced plants which are not always well adapted to hot dry climates in the southern Great Plains. Thus, introducing native Texas bunchgrasses that maintain great plant quality while consume less soil moisture could lead to future wider applications in municipal settings including ornamental broadleaf herbaceous and arboreal Texas natives. This ongoing project has been conducted at Texas A&M University Turf research center at College Station. Native grass accessions (sideoats grama (Bouteloua curtipendula) and little blue stem (Schizachyrium scoparium)) and commercially available ornamental (purple fountaingrass (Pennisetum alopecuroides)) were established in a split-plot design with 4 replicated plots. Whole plot treatments were irrigation levels (0.6, 0.45, 0.3, and 0xHitorical ETo (evapotranspiration potential), based on historical data from the Texas ET network). During the study period, volumetric water content, aboveground plant development, plant quality, wilt, and NDVI has been collected to determine the minimal levels of irrigation needed throughout the season to sustain acceptable appearance, function, and quality."
