Aspects of the reproductive biology of the waratah Telopea speciosissima R.Br. were studied under controlled conditions using large, pot‐grown plants. One to 2 d prior to perianth opening, anthers dehisced in a circle of clumps onto the pollen presenter around the oval stigmatic groove (pollination chamber). This deposition pattern may lead to a degree of autogamous pollination. Pollen viability, measured by fluorescence microscopy (fluorescein diacetate), was at a maximum of 90% at perianth… Expand
