Abstract

Describes flowering phenology, seed set, and seedling establishment of Clethra alnifolia in three forests. Flowering patterns were consistent between years but differed among sites. Plants had high rates of fruit set and adequate dispersal, and seed showed high viability. However, seedling establishment was low. Forest floor microsites affected new recruitment. This species appears to reproduce vegetatively in the forest environment.
