Abstract

         This study was primarily concerned to identify, classify and name the taxonomic inventory of ornamental plants as well as to determine the growth requirements of plants of both exotic and endemic plants present in Plaza Independencia through the gardeners maintaining the plants by interview. Since ornamental plants have different growth habits. It is important to understand the growth habits in order to make knowledgeable decisions regarding plant placement, selection, and pruning and maintenance requirements.
            The results shows plants are exotic and more prominent in the area because their population cannot be controlled since there are no natural predators for the exotic plants, although a follow up study is recommended dealing on these plant based on the survey results. Based on the results there are 56 plant species identified belonging to 32 families namely Fabaceae (3), Acanthaceae (4), Malvaceae (2), Asparagaceae (4), Araceae (2), Euphorbiaceae (4), Arecaceae (4), Plumbaginaceae (1), Cactaceae (1), Lauraceae (1), Lythraceae (1), Rubiaceae (3), Magnoliaceae (1), Dipterocarpaceae (1), Apocynaceae (3), Lilaceae (3), Crassulaceae (1), Oleaceae (1), Boraginaceae (1), Aizoaceae (1), Araucariaceae (1), Casuarinaceae (1), Orchidaceae(1), Heliconiaceae (1), Nyctaginaceae (2), Strelitiziaceae (1), Verbenaceae (1), Poaceae(2), Amaranthaceae (1), Convolvulaceae (1), Ebanaceae (1), Portulacaceae (1). And also the specific growth requirements are identified through this study with their specific requirements.
             In interest of forthcoming studies, the researchers would like to recommend to study more plazas with ornamental plants within Cebu City or even in Cebu province and to identify more species of ornamental plants and give more updated uses of specific ornamental plants in this study. Also this study aims to help gardeners know the general growth and maintenance requirements of the ornamental plants. And to determine what the necessary techniques are and care for the plants to grow and survive, and to act as a reference for future studies that are related to ornamental plants.
