Abstract

There are four native varieties of poppy anemone, namely, Anemone coronaria var. coccinea (red flowered), Anemone coronaria var. alba (white flowered) Anemone coronaria var. rosea (pink flowered) and Anemone coronaria var. cyanea (purple flowered) in Turkey. In this study, flowers of the four varieties were used as plant material in order to determine viability, germination rate and production of the pollen grains.
