AbstractExamines factors controlling germination in Coreopsis lanceolata. Germination was greatest at 15 and 25 C and 12 h light/dark cycles. Storing seeds at -10C did not affect germination; however, seeds subjected to 5C entered a secondary dormancy that could not be broken by warmer temperatures, freezing temperatures, or light/dark cycles.
