AbstractResearches the growth of five local ecotype seed sources of Gaillardia pulchella. Seed sources were from northeast Florida, central west Florida, central east Florida, southeast Florida, and east Texas. Containerized plants were transplanted to field sites in early April in northwestern, northern central, and southeastern Florida. Growth varied among ecotypes, with plants growing more at the two northern sites. Survival varied by ecotype and site and there were significant ecotype by site interactions. There was no home region advantage evident from this study.
