Inheritance Of Indumentum

        David Leach, moderator of the "Rhododendron Round Table" at the Annual Meeting, had his own contribution on the subject of inheritance of indumentum on rhododendron leaves. It was summed up in a slide as follows:

(Catawbiense var. album x yakushimanum) x yakushimanum = (non-indumented x indumented) x indumented

gene inhertiance of indumentum
     non-indumented        indumented
     Actual: 98 seedlings total
                  72 non-indumented
                  26 indumented

       Conclusion: indumentum is controlled by two genes, non-indumented being dominant.
