Abstract:
Scarification and stratification requirements of Mexican redbud and evergreen sumac seeds and the effects of temperature on Mexican redbud evergreen sumac, and mealy sage seed germination were investigated. The maximum predicted germination from a quadratic response surface was 94.9% after 62 minutes scarification and 35 days stratification for Mexican redbud and 59.3% after 52 minutes scarification and 73 days stratification for evergreen sumac. Mexican redbud seeds germinated from 23.8 to 30.5 C, evergreen sumac from 20.8 to 30.6 C, and mealy sage from 20.6 to 34.2 C. Maxium predicted final percent germination and the temperature at which it occurred for Mexican redbud, mealy sage, and evergreen sumac was 104.2 at 27.5 C, 89.8 at 29.2 C, and 42.4 at 22.1 C, respectively
