Abstract:
Petal color of 10 carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus L.) cultivars MINAMI series is divided into two color groups, the acyanic group and the cyanic group. The acyanic group consists of yellow-flowered cultivars 'Poly Minami' and 'Lemon Minami' and off-white-flowered cultivar 'Vanilla Minami'. The cyanic group consists of orange-flowered cultivars 'Orange Minami' and 'Minami', pinkish-flowered cultivars 'Pippi Minami', 'Passion Minami', 'Feminine Minami' and 'Sakura Minami', and reddish-flowered cultivar 'Tommy Minami'. MINAMI series produced from bud mutation has a unique direction of flower color changes. Therefore, the usage of these plant materials might contribute to the elucidation of the mechanism of flower color mutation.
