Abstract

Compares plant growth, vigor, flowering, quality, and survival of five ecotypes of Gaillardia pulchella grown in three locations in Florida. Growth of ecotypes grown in their home region was not greater than when grown outside of their home region. However, some ecotypes had greater survival rates in certain locations compared to others.
