Abstract/Contents:""Bulb lawns" include a polyculture of managed turfgrass and spring-flowering, bulb plants. Bulb plants used for this purpose typically evolved in alpine locations that have compressed growing seasons. Thus, these plants emerge from dormancy, provide a spring floral display, and reenter dormancy in the span of a few months in early spring predominately before turfgrass reaches optimal growth. Few research studies have investigated factors, such as fertility programs or turfgrass species, that influence incorporation of flowering bulbs into managed turfgrass systems. The objective of this study is to evaluate the influence of turf species, fertility program, and bulb-plant species on floral density under management as a bulb lawn. Studies were conducted at two sites in Blacksburg, VA and each conducted for four years. Study design was a RCBD split plot with two turf species by five fertility treatments as factorially arranged main plots and seven bulb species as subplots. At initiation in fall of 2019 or 2020, depending on trial site, tall fescue turf was cut to remove sod, 10 bulbs were arranged in each subplot in random order using a custom jig, and sod was replaced with either tall fescue or fine fescue randomly in each block for a total of ten main plots. The flowering bulb species had average cumulative blooms m-2 in four years from greatest to least in the following order: C. tommasinianus 'Ruby Giant' (165), N. jonquilla 'Baby Moon' (62), C. chrysanthus 'Cream Beauty' (41), Iris histroides 'Katherine Hodgkin' (21), Muscari azureum 'Grape Hyacinth' (17), Muscari azureum 'Venus' (17), and Narcissus ssp. 'Rip Van Winkle' (5). Increasing phosphorous and/or using plant growth regulator to suppress turf growth increased bloom density of Cream Beauty and Baby Moon. Fine fescue suppressed blooms compared to tall fescue for Ruby Giant, Venus, Baby Moon, and Katherine Hodgkin."
