AbstractExamines the floral anatomy and pollination biology of Cyrilla racemiflora in Alabama. The floral parts undergo a number of color changes during maturation. Results indicate that plants are self-compatible and that self-pollination can lead to seed set. However, pollination appears to be rare in the absence of a vector.
