Value for rehabilitation of disturbed sites

More info for the terms: cover, natural, pappus, restoration, shrub

Coyote bush has been used for restoration and erosion control projects. It can be established from seed, bare root plantings, and containerized stock  [48,63]. Restoration projects where coyote bush is planted from containers are most successful in the long term if a sex ratio of 1:5 (males to females) is used [15]. If adjacent sites have viable populations, natural establishment can be as effective as seeding [10]. The dwarf form of coyote bush is most commonly used as a hardy cover shrub on slopes [11].

Seed can be collected with a cloth and is best if dried in a warm ventilated room or in sun without wind. Sometimes the pappus is removed before planting. In nurseries, seeds are sown in fall or early spring using sandy soil or a vermiculite, perlite, and sphagnum moss mix [48].
