Abstract:

INTRODUCTION
The University of Kentucky (UK) Native Plants Program at the UK Research and Education Center in Princeton, Kentucky was started when a stunning plant, Spigelia marilandica, of native provenance was found to be relatively easy to propagate in spite of being described in literature as difficult to propagate. The program has been continued in support of the Kentucky native plant production economics (Ingram et al., 2015) that indicate there has been an increase in native plant production since 2003.
Propagating Kentucky native plants from known provenances has been investigated. This presentation will discuss the successes and those yet to be successfully propagated. The propagation methods were to increase numbers of plants of a given provenance for distribution and landscape evaluation; therefore, they may not be efficient production protocols.
