AbstractCampsis radicans seed production and seed physiology was studied under greenhouse and laboratory conditions. Physiological dormancy was relieved with 2 weeks of prechilling. Maximum germination was observed when seeds were exposed to 35/25 C (day/night) temperatures and a 12 hour photoperiod. Greater than 59% germination was observed at pHs between 5 and 9. Osmotic stress greater than -0.2 completely inhibited germination.
