Abstract

Native plants with ornamental potential for planting in urban green space of Tehran.

Abstract

The need to use native plants in urban green spaces has increasingly felt. Due to the global economic problems, native plants, in addition to compliance and stability, can play an important role in currency saving and probably to save the needless expenditure of the more import ornamental plants. The purpose of this study was to introduce native domesticated plants for green space of Tehran. This study was carried out on domesticated plants in the southern Alborz habitat of the National Botanical Garden of Iran. The plants were transferred from the field to the habitat, adapted and settled over the years. The introduced species are among the most successful species in establishment. Twenty-three species were introduced based on their ornamental potential for planting in Tehran.
