AbstractCleistogamy is the behavior of flowers which do not open but which produce fruits and seeds as a result of self-fertilization. Danthonia californica, D. unispicata, and D. spicata were found to be cleistogamous, but D. intermedia produced no cleistogenes in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Cleistogenes were capable of producing new plants and therefore may be a means for reproduction for cleistogamous species in Jackson Hole.
