About the event: UC LPITTM seeks to improve urban water-use efficiency by evaluating landscape plant performance on three irrigation treatments corresponding to the Water Use Classification of Landscape Species (WUCOLS) High, Moderate, and Low categories of water need. Plants are irrigated regularly during their first summer after planting. Treatments are imposed during the second growing season where researchers collect growth and quality ratings. The Open House allows landscape and horticultural industry professionals and educators the opportunity to see new plants and share your opinions and preferences by rating a representative sample of the plants in the field.
Participation is voluntary. UC ANR is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
