A Chimeric Tulip

Document Type

Abstract

An unusual yellow Cottage tulip which was collected by Norman Stookey in the spring of 1934 was given to the author. All the petals of this tulip were yellow except one which was one-half yellow and one-half red. Inasmuch as the bulb from which this tulip developed has not produced another such chimeric flower it appears probable that it is due to a somatic mutation or a somatic non-disjunction of the chromosomes.
