A SUMMARY OF NINE YEARS OF HORTICULTURAL RESEARCH ON MISSISSIPPI ROADSIDES INCLUDES AN EVALUATION OF THE ADAPTION OF SHRUBS AND TREES, SOIL ANALYSIS AND TYPES, FERTILIZATION, PROPAGATION FROM NATURAL PROCESSES, AND LIMITED IRRIGATION STUDIES. SOUTHERN WAX MYRTLE, YAUPON HOLLY, AND MULTIFLORA ROSE WERE FOUND TO BE SUITABLE. TWO LONG LASTING FERTILIZERS APPLIED NEAR THE SOIL BALL WERE BETTER THAN 13-13-13. NATURAL REGROWTH OF NATIVE PLANTS COULD BE ACHIEVED BY DIRECT SEEDING OR PLANTING WITH LINERS.
