These data include information on a field experiment on Castilleja coccinea (L.) Spreng., scarlet Indian paintbrush (Orobanchaceae). There is intraspecific variation in scarlet Indian paintbrush in the color of the bracts surrounding the flowers. Two bract color morphs were included in this study, the scarlet and yellow morphs. The experiment was conducted at Illinois Beach State Park in 2012. The aim of the work was to compare the color morphs with regard to 1) self-compatibility, 2) response to pollinator exclusion, 3) cross-compatibility between the color morphs, and 4) relative female fertility and male fitness.

Three files are attached with this record. The raw data are in "fruitSet.csv" and "seedSet.csv", while "readme.txt" has detailed explanations of the raw data files.
