Bohemia Ecological Preserve

Partly Albino Turpentine Weed. In this variation of Albinism a genetic mutation has reduced the production of green chlorophyll in the stems and petals of a Turpentine Weed. The plant can survive a while on the sugars produced by the green leaves. The yellow buds display some carotene pigments, normally covered up by green chlorophyll. The white flowers are less protected from the sun, and will wilt sooner than the normally colored plants. Mint Family.
