AbstractExamines the breeding system of Lobelia cardinalis. Specifically, the study examines distance between population on the success of self- and cross-pollination. Seed production and germinability did not differ according to population distance or whether the plant was self- or cross-pollinated. However, seed production and germinability varied according to the source of maternal and paternal plants.
