AbstractEvaluates 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.
