Japonicum (PP) cv. Honshu). The unique dark red-brown color of R. sanguineum (HPN) resulted from the modifying effect of a mesophyll with many green chloroplasts underlying an epidermis heavily pigmented with red anthocyanins. The spots or blotches of darker color found on the corollas of some species were composed of clusters of colored subepidermal cells, with the overlying epidermal cells generally lacking color. Red to black spots were caused by anthocyanins, yellow to orange spots by chromoplasts, and green spots by chloroplasts.

A cross between the two species gave a hybrid with a good aroma and longer 14 E. G. WILLIAMS, J. L. ROUSE, B. F. PALSER, AND R. B. KNOX flowering. Analysis of the floral oils of the hybrid showed a significant increase in benzyl benzoate and benzyl salicylate compared with the R. simsii parent. These compounds were determined to be major factors in the characteristic odor of the flowers, although some of the more volatile compounds such as linalool, geraniol, and others also contributed. Floral pigmentation in Rhododendron is basically attributable to two different groups of chemical compounds: flavonoids and carotenoids (Robinson 1980).

The method provides an excellent microscopic probe for detection of reproductive cells in the pollen tube. C. Fertilization After traversing the micropyle, the pollen tube enters one synergid from the side, near the upper end of the filiform apparatus (B. F. Palser and E. G. Williams, unpublished). The tube may form a cap-like swelling over the tip of the two synergids before entry. The tube usually constricts at the point of entry, but swells again within the synergid before opening to release its contents.
