AbstractEvaluates the effects of delayed self-pollination on reproductive success in Kosteletzkya virginica (syn K. pentacarpos). There were no differences in pollen deposition between autonomously pollinated and open-pollinated flowers. Delayed autonomous selfing resulted in increased seed production in the overall population.
