Abstract

Researches the drought resistance of four potted, native, ornamental perennials: Echinacea purpurea, Rudbeckia fulgida (var. sullivantii), Monarda didyma, and Helianthus angustifolius. Of the four species evaluated, Echinacea purpurea had the highest dehydration tolerance while Helianthus angustifolius had the lowest dehydration tolerance. However, all four species fall predominantly in the drought-avoidance category.
