Drought Tolerant Turf Alternative & Erosion Control

By: Mark Ohde




October 5, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM



Course Description:


Kurapia is a newly introduced selection of Lippia nodiflora, which is native to parts of North and South America. This cultivar was produced after years of selective breeding in Japan, where it is now gaining popularity for its range of uses in sustainable landscape applications.

Seminar will present a new UC Riverside and UC Davis tested groundcover species called Kurapia. Topics will cover Kurapia's many benefits for landscapes in California, Arizona and Nevada.

This course will identify the differences between Kurapia and the Lippia nodiflora species, as well as other Lippia in the nursery trade. The unique attributes of this plant, including very low water use, tolerance of a broad range of soil types and very high salinity conditions, erosion control features, and effectiveness in weed suppression will be covered, and research data supporting each of these characteristics will be briefly highlighted, including studies completed at UC Davis and UC Riverside.
