Vegetative propagation of Juniperus osteosperma (Utah Juniper) by cuttings

Vegetative propagation of Juniperus osteosperma (Utah Juniper) by cuttings Abstract: Utah juniper ( Juniperus osteosperma (Torr.) Little (Cupressaceae)) was vegetatively propagated using tip cuttings from juvenile plants. Rooting was most successful (69%) when cuttings were treated with indole butyric acid (IBA) in talc (0.8% ai), struck in 2:1 perlite:peat (v:v) rooting substrate, provided bottom heat, and kept on a mist bench covered by a white polyethylene tent in a greenhouse environment with supplemental lighting. Utah juniper is highly drought tolerant, and superior accessions may have potential for increased use in water-conserving landscapes. The ability to propagate it by vegetative means should facilitate the selection and development of superior plants for use in the landscape industry. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Native Plants Journal University of Wisconsin Press

Abstract

Abstract: Utah juniper ( Juniperus osteosperma (Torr.) Little (Cupressaceae)) was vegetatively propagated using tip cuttings from juvenile plants. Rooting was most successful (69%) when cuttings were treated with indole butyric acid (IBA) in talc (0.8% ai), struck in 2:1 perlite:peat (v:v) rooting substrate, provided bottom heat, and kept on a mist bench covered by a white polyethylene tent in a greenhouse environment with supplemental lighting. Utah juniper is highly drought tolerant, and superior accessions may have potential for increased use in water-conserving landscapes. The ability to propagate it by vegetative means should facilitate the selection and development of superior plants for use in the landscape industry.
