As mentioned in the results, fourteen morphological traits in twenty four genotypes of satureja species include plant height, Plant width, branch number per main stem, subsidiary stem length, Spike length, Spikelets length, Peduncle length, Sepals
width, Internode length, Stem diameter, Flower length, Leaf length and Leaf width are discussed.
5 mm 3-8 mm dichasial peduncle Calyx, corolla 4 or 5 5 and androecium merosity Sepal
margins erose entire Samara two-celled, one-seeded, one-celled, one-seeded, 16-19 x 5-6 mm, 20-28 x 7.
nervosa, because both have a calyx with relatively small sepals
(6-9 x 3-4.
This species too has a bi-coloured flower, with the sepals
and petals being almost translucent green to cream, and a purple labellum.
6 cm long, sepals
that are free, lanceolate and with laciniate margins, and corollas that are sigmoid with 4 external appendages at the limb.
From below these sepals
swoop forward two anthers, behind which -- and not to be missed -- is that third, pale petal.
The width of the sepals
(upper, lower and the pair of laterals), the length of petals, and the length and width of seeds and pollen grains from the specimens collected and also from herbarium material (see Appendix 1) were measured.
The calyx is weakly monosymmetfic with three subequal, keeled, pale green sepals
tinged distally with purple.
p) is formed (fig 1 C), in more advanced stages (fig 1 D), respectively, from outside to inside the sepals
In addition, the lateral sepals
and floret size of the white hybrid are larger than those of the pale-mauve hybrid.
It produces green sepals
instead of yellow petals around a large black cone.
tricholepis because the former has deep purple flowers, sepals
glabrous and 3nerved, bracts 1-nerved, and leaves with 3nerved sheath.
