Drought resistance was a more important factor than winter hardiness when 26 species of trees and shrubs were assessed for suitability as ornamentals in conditions on the Apsheron Peninsula. The species were assessed for several indices including drought resistance, winter hardiness, shoot forming capacity, height increment, and methods of propagation. The data are tabulated. Eight species found to be highly resistant to drought included Euonymus velutina, Ficus carica, Ostrya carpinifolia, Pterocarya pterocarpa, Quercus araxina and Zelkova carpinifolia.
