Abstract

Synandra hispidula (Michx.) Britt., an herbaceous species of mesic deciduous forests, has been reported to be an annual, winter annual, biennial and perennial. Our observations on its ecological life cycle in Kentucky show that it is a strict biennial. Seeds germinate from February to April, and all surviving plants flower and produce seeds the second spring, after which the entire plant dies.
