Abstract

Evaluates the growth, visual quality, and stress response of Rudbeckia hirta (cultivar Indian Summer) grown in three locations in Colorado under different levels of irrigation. Rudbeckia hirta performed well with 0% to 25% evapotranspiration (of amount required to maintain Kentucky bluegrass in an optimum condition), indicating that R. hirta is suitable for use as a bedding plant in low-water landscape installations.
