Sexual vs asexual reproductionEdit

The article says "Viable seed is rarely produced, and the plant usually reproduces asexually via its basal bulbous sections and via bulbils. Although the plant reproduces vegetatively (asexaully) most of the time, it has been shown to possess high genetic variability." This contradicts what is said by the given reference to Novak & Welfley p. 272: "Although bulbous bluegrass chiefly reproduces through sexual means within its native range, it is primarily an asexually reproducing species within North America where clonal production of propagules, or bulblets, have replaced the production of seed". Thus a local phenomenon is described as being general. -Episcophagus (talk) 13:02, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
