  • NR = not rated; BR = trialed before O/A rating began; NC = not collected due to high plant mortality.
  • Each plant is classified according to WUCOLS IV Categories of Water Needs- H: High; M: Moderate/Medium; L: Low; NA: Not Appropriate for this region. (See the Nuts and Bolts tab for details on how the recommendation was determined.)
