Silver Summit Chimeral Segregants 'Silver Summit' Chimeral Segregants


Tissue culturing leaf tissue of the pinwheel flowering cultivar 'Silver Summit' causes segregation of the component genotypes of the chimera. Plants derived from the epidermal layer produce solid purple flowers, while plants derived from the petiole core tissue produce solid white flowering plants. This is identical to the phenomenon described during the tissue culture of the cultivar 'Valencia.'
