Abstract

The purposes of this paper are threefold: 1) To provide a justification for the increased use of native plants in mountain land development, not only in northeastern Utah, but in the entire western United States. 2) To investigate and delineate what the physical needs of a plant materials list are. 3) To provide a nearly comprehensive list of basically unused plants native to northeastern Utah and to highlight their landscaping potentials based on the earlier investigation. Also touched upon, to help landscape architectural students and professionals alike, are two cursory case studies and a chapter which deals briefly with the problems of nursery supply of native plants and the potential and future research.
