Abstract/Contents:"The use of low input and minimal maintenance alternative groundcovers for landscapes in the low desert southwest U.S. is gaining interest. This experiment evaluated the performance of Kurapia (Lippia nodiflora) under varied rates of drip irrigation in a non-play area on a golf course in Litchfield Park, AZ. White and pink flowered varieties of Kurapia were planted from a single 3.8 liter pot in plots measuring 3m by 3m on 13 May 2019. Both varieties were established and sustained during the first year with pre-existing overhead irrigation. In the second year, the two varieties were watered at three levels of drip irrigation: high - 80%, medium - 40% and low - 20% of water applied to bermudagrass. The experiment was established as a 2 x 3 factorial arranged in a randomized complete block design with four replications. Data were collected for Kurapia greenness, flower shedding, and growth rates. Digital image estimates of percent greenness were taken using a mobile phone application, Canopeo®. Green canopy cover values obtained using the Canopeo® app were compared with visual observations. During the first year, there were significant differences between the white and pink varieties for overall plant growth. Three months after planting, the white flower variety covered the plot area 98% and measured 5.1 cm in height while the pink variety covered 72% plot area and measured 8.6 cm in height. During the second year, the quality of the Kurapia growth was significantly affected by irrigation level. Quality of kurapia was significantly declined when irrigated at 20% compared to the 40 and 80% levels. However, there was no significant different in plant quality between 40 and 80% level. Once established, Kurapia can be irrigated with 40% of water typically applied to bermudagrass when using surface drip irrigation under low desert Arizona conditions."
