Inheritance of Compact Growth Habit, and Investigation of Linkage to Weeping Architecture and Purple Leaf Color in Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis L.)

HORTSCIENCE, 56(12), 1513–1515.

By: H. Chen n & D. Werner n

author keywords: ornamental plant; Fabaceae; tree genetics; dwarf growth
TL;DR: This research is the first to report the inheritance of compact growth in eastern redbud and confirms independent assortment between the compact, purple leaf, and weeping genes. (via Semantic Scholar)

By: D. Roberts & D. Werner*

author keywords: DNA content; flow cytometry; plant breeding; systematics; taxonomy

Inheritance and allelism of morphological traits in eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis L.)

HORTICULTURE RESEARCH, 2.

By: D. Roberts n, D. Werner n, P. Wadl* & R. Trigiano*

TL;DR: Inheritance analysis in families derived from controlled hybridization of ‘Covey” (green leaf) and ‘Forest Pansy’ (purple leaf) suggest that purple leaf color and weeping architecture are both controlled by single recessive genes, for which the symbols pl1 and wp1 are proposed, respectively.
