AbstractEvaluates the propagule type and source of Amorpha herbacea var. crenulata plants transplanted into a restored pine rockland. Whole plants, cuttings, and seeds were rescued for an experimental translocation grown in a nursery or greenhouse. Large whole plants had the best survival rates followed by cuttings. Seedling survival rate was only 26 percent.
