UC Davis horticulturists in collaboration with UC Cooperative Extension researchers based in Orange County and San Joaquin County, are evaluating landscape plants with the potential to be good performers in low-water use gardens. We're currently looking for assistance in evaluating exciting new cultivars provided by growers and breeders who want to evaluate their new plant varieties for low-water use in hot California gardens. The results of these trials are providing growers and retailers the information they need to successfully distribute and market these plants to the public.
In the past, these evaluations have been done in person at research plots located at UC Davis and UC South Coast REC, but this time we're going virtual!
If you've been to past events, you will receive a 1-time link to an online tour of the plants in July and a ratings survey. If you are a landscape or horticultural professional, garden writer or blogger, breeder or a UC Master Gardener and you haven't been to one of our events and would like to participate, please visit http://ucanr.edu/survey/survey.cfm?surveynumber=31814
