This poster will summarize the work of the Grant Research Goals of the Jordan Field School trip to Tall Hisban in May/June of 2012. Specifically the Poster will review our findings on 1.) observations made of environmental, genetic and morphological factors that make Jordanian plants “xeriscapic” plants, the implications for their sustainability and xeriscapic plants discovered that have potential for introduction into the U.S. for use in the home landscape 2.) the results and formative conclusions, of our academic and physical research, for evidence supporting our premise that Tall Hisban is the site of an Iron Age Royal Garden.
