Abstract

Assesses gene and pollen flow in Lobelia cardinalis from horticultural planting to wild populations. Pollen from 1 km away resulted in 25-50% fruit set. The type of pollen also affected the percentage of offspring from non-local sources. The article indicates that pollen movement from horticultural plantings into native populations is possible.
