Fruit colorFruit edgedFlower descriptionClades color
the symmetrical flowers are deformed with very short tubes, and an overall short length, but slightly variable between flowers. Petals are narrow, curled under on the margins or curled at the pointed tips. Petal color follows the Japanese Horticultural Society Chart and is described as bright red purple (JHS 9506). Flower tube is light yellow green (JHS 3304). Short stamens are light yellow green (JHS 3303) and the stigma is slightly darker yellow green similar to the tube (JHS 3304). Ovaries have 6 ridges. (Note Lee Goodfellow: the features of the flower suggest polyploidy which was probably induced chemically. The most likely agent for that would be colchicine).
