Abstract

The North Central Regional Plant Introduction Station's curatorial responsibilities as part of the U.S. National Plant Germplasm System (White et al., 1989) and our coordination of the NC-7 Regional Ornamental Plant Trials (Widrlechner, 1990) have led us to germinate seeds of many unusual woody plants. Attempts to germinate these seeds have been documented since 1984. Many of these records are routine and duplicate information found in widely available references. However, we have successfully germinated the seeds of some species for which little is known about their germination requirements, or such information is absent from standard compendia.

This report summarizes our non-replicated experiences germinating seeds of those woody plants for which little has been reported to date, with the hope that these data will give propagators a starting point for developing reliable germination protocols for these plants.
