Abstract

Tests the resistance of several vinca (Catharanthus) and Salvia cultivars (including S. coccinea cv. Lady in Red) to root-knot nematode. All of the Salvia cultivars were resistant to root-knot nematode except S. farinacea Oxford Blue, indicating potential use of these species in landscapes with root-knot nematode.
