Many ornamental plants popular in Central Texas landscapes can still grow and thrive when watered using half or less of the usual recommended irrigation amounts, according to research results recently published by two Texas A&M AgriLife institutes.
The study found when watered in small amounts most of the plants remained lush, meaning they had adequate moisture and new growth, and some remained stable even with zero irrigation, according to Amy Uyen Truong, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service assistant with the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources and the Texas Water Resources Institute in College Station.
