This is the follow up to my last post on diploid flowers. As I stated last time, no matter how much emphasis we may choose to give to plant traits (and these things are very important!) in the end it is the flowers that draw us in and keep us going. So here are some of my favorite styles of tetraploid flowers.
I am very fond of Ancient Elf. It is the offspring of two conversion parents, so brings in new and interesting genetics to the tetraploid gene pool. This plant is very much like some of the species in appearance, and the two cultivars that are its parents are likely not too terribly removed from the species.
