Spacer Guests can be assured that there is established evidence that this plant has been found in all of the green filled counties of Arkansas. However, the white filled counties should not be interpreted as counties in which this plant does not grow.

Berlandiera X betonicifolia

Berlandiera X betonicifolia is a naturally occurring hybrid from crossing between Berlandiera pumila and Berlandiera texana. The "X" between the genus name and species name defines the binomial as a hybrid.

Biosystematic Study of Berlandiera (Compositae)

Berlandiera is revised to includeB. subacaulis, B. pumila, B. texana, andB. lyrata with its varietieslyrata andmacrophylla. All species may be induced to interbreed readily, producing F1 progeny which are vigorous but with reduced fertility. Sympatric species produce natural hybrids which are proposed here asB. Xhumilis (=B. pumila XB. subacaulis) andB. Xbetonicifolia (=B. pumila XB. texana). All taxa investigated hadn = 15 chromosomes, including new counts forB. subacaulis and all six F1 hybrids.
