Abstract: Cytological and chromatographic data indicate that Silphium integrifolium Michx. is a rather homogeneous group of plants. Cytological study shows good pairing during meiosis in interspecific and intraspecific hybrids. Two-dimensional paper chromatography indicates that the varieties of S. integrifolium are more similar to each other than they are to two related species, S. asperrimum and S. speciosum. The varieties of S. integrifolium are chromatographically homogeneous.
