SummaryA Chromatographic survey of flavonoids in the various flower color mutants of the 28-chromosome “Siberian” Iris (series Sibiricae subseries Sibiricae) was conducted using mutants of known genotype (Vaughn 1974). Mutants at the C locus contain the malvidin glycoside ensatin, indicating that this gene locus may control methylation of delphinidin. Clear white, a mutation at the W locus, results in the production of flavones in excess.
