AbstractExamines the effects of daily light integrals and vernalization temperature and duration on the growth and flowering of a Coreopsis grandiflora cultivar. The C. grandiflora cultivar did not flower without vernalization. Only a low percentage flowered with four weeks of vernalization, compared to five or eight weeks.
