AbstractInvestigates whether root-knot nematodes infect native and non-native ornamental landscape plants (Clethra alnifolia, Hydrangea quercifolia, Illicium parviflorum, Itea virginica, Viburnum obovatum). Roots of the native taxa had few or no galls and are recommended as alternatives in sites with soil infested by three species of root-knot nematode.
