Abstract

Researches germination and propagation protocols for Amorpha herbacea var. crenulata, a pine rockland endemic that occurs in south Florida. Softwood cuttings root well but sometimes are not easily transplanted. Mature plants can also be collected from the wild but the process is labor intensive. Seeds can be frozen for long term storage.
