Description: The history of the genus Santalum (sandalwood) in Hawaii is reviewed, along with all the early reference regarding its botany and horticulture. This paper gives some seed germination and viability information on Santalum haleakalae Hbd. and S. paniculatum H. & A. both native to Hawaii and Santalum album L. native to Indonesia. Germination was shown to be highly variable: as early as 26 days after sowing for S. album, 75 days for S. paniculatum, and 155 days for S. haleakalae. Seed viability varied from 324 days in S. album, 387 days in S. haleakalae and 824 days in S. paniculatum. Germination percentages ranged from 38 percent to 77 percent. This study also showed that supplemental chelated iron is essential in the propagation of all the species tested.
