Description: Germination of eastern redcedar (Juniperus virginiana L.) seeds was best with a 96-hour soak in citric acid (10,000 ppm), with 6 weeks of moist-warm (24° C) stratification, and 10 weeks of moist-cold (5° C) stratification. Geographic seed sources responded differently to treatment. Use of fresh seeds could reduce the time in moist-warm stratification, would improve germination, and would reduce interaction between seed source and treatment.
Keywords: Juniperus virginiana, germination, seed source
