Bermudagrass, Bulbs, Blooms, and Bees - Live

Mike Richardson, Ph.D.
Start Date
60 Minutes

Turfgrasses are planted on some 50 million acres in the United States. While turf is often viewed as a monoculture of grasses, there are many flowering plants that are often found in turfgrass systems that can add beauty, interest, and biodiversity to the turf and can serve as a food source for pollinators. In this 60-minute webinar, Michael D. Richardson, Ph.D. will share results from the University of Arkansas’ research group. They have been investigating early-spring bulbs and summer-blooming perennials as a means of enhancing turfgrass sites that do not require pure stands of turfgrass. Performance, persistence, and pollinator preference of various flowering plants will be discussed.
