Bicolor flowering dahlias generally produce inflorescences with bicolor petals characterized by a colored basal part and a white tip; however, they frequently produce single-colored petals. This petal color lability prevents uniform production of cut or pot flowers of bicolor dahlias and reduces the economic value of bicolor cultivars. In this study, to reveal the underlying mechanism and control color lability, the pattern of occurrence of singlecolored petals was characterized in a red–white… CONTINUE READING
