Description: Research was designed to assess the establishment and growth potential of 30 perennial forbs by seeding and/or transplanting them on coal mine spoil materials over a 2-year period. Five species showed exceptional emergence and vigorous growth from direct seeding. Six species showed vigorous growth with the use of transplanted plants. Seeding resulted in successful stands of most forbs on coal mine spoil material.

Keywords: forbs, coal, mine spoil, mining, seeding, transplanting
