Phenotype: rosette form
Rosette-Dwarf is a true-breeding Fast Plants stock that is homozygous recessive for a gene that causes deficiency of the growth hormone gibberellic acid, resulting in stems that do not elongate after seedlings emerge. This stock develops compact plants with dark green leaves that fan out at soil level.
