This meeting abstract describes research on the optimal germination conditions of four species in the genus Callirhoe. Scarification was required for germination in almost all of the seeds. There was little variation in germination among the species. Although C. papaver was not included among the four species studied, germination results from this study may also apply to C. papaver.
