Abstract

Evaluates the performance of 10 native and 10 exotic species grown under irrigated and nonirrigated landscape conditions in Florida. For most species examined, plant density and dieback were similar for irrigated and nonirrgated plants. Native plants that increased canopy size with irrigation are indigenous to swamps and streams.
