Davis enterprise, a community newspaper covering Davis and Yolo County released on Oct 24, 2014, an article titled UC researchers: How low-water can our landscapes go? The article reported a story on UC Agriculture and Natural Science researchers Loren Oki and Karrie Reid test plants’ ability to survive and thrive with varying levels of water. According to a California Department of Resources study, about 53 percent of our landscapes. “Kurapia is a great option where you need a groundcover that won’t get irrigated. I think it will be great in what they call ‘hell strips,’ ” Reid says. “That’s the area between the sidewalk and the street where it’s notoriously difficult to grow anything. Kurapia will do just fine there! Homeowners may want to consider using it as a lawn replacement, too.
UCD recently completed a study on kurapia, a newly developed, highly versatile groundcover that was developed and now is widely used in Japan. It is available for the first time to the public at the Arboretum and Public Garden plant sale on Saturday.
