Keywords:Astragalus vulnerariae, Cutting, Endemik, IBA, Landscape
AbstractTurkey has very rich natural plant diversity due to its geographical location and the terrain is located. In this study, especially endemic Astragalus vulnerariae DC. from Fabaceae family were propagated by cutting in semi-controlled greenhouse in the spring and autumn periods of 2016-2017. Their morphological characteristics and usage areas in landscape studies were also determined. While plant cuttings were rooted, 3 applications were made, including the control group, IBA concentrations of 5.000 ppm and 10.000 ppm. According to the data obtained after rooting, a statistically significant difference was found. The best rooting of A. vulnerariae cuttings was observed in the spring period with 60% IBA hormone application of 5.000 ppm. It is determined that A. vulnerariae taxa, which attract attention with their aesthetic and functional features, can be used in landscaping works, especially in the use of ground coverings, in rock gardens, roof and terrace gardens, and landscape repair works.
