Abstract: The investigation was carried out in two different seed sources viz. Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh of Stereospermum chelonoides.The aim of the study was to determine variability and germination divergence in seed traits of Stereospermum chelonoidescollected from two states. A variation was observed in germination percent, mean daily germination, peak value, germination energy and germination value and seed growth parameters (capsule/seed length, capsule/seed width and seed weight) of two states. The seeds from Uttarakhand found better as per selected parameters in comparison to the seeds from Uttar Pradesh.
