AbstractThis meeting abstract describes the vernalization and photoperiod required initiate flowering in a cultivar of Coreopsis grandiflora. Either two weeks of nine-hour short days or vernalization followed by long days resulted in flowering, but longer durations increased the number of flower buds and decreased the time to flower.
