In the tubular flowers of foxgloves, wild type coloration is red while a mutation called white produces white flowers. Another mutation, called peloria, causes the flowers at the apex of the stem to be huge. Another mutation called dwarf, affects stem length. A white flowered plant (otherwise phenotypically wild type) is crossed to a plant that is dwarf and peloria, but has wild type red flower color. All of the F1 plants are tall with white, normal sized flowers. An F1 is now crossed with the dwarf plant, and the offspring are listed below, only mutant traits are noted in the data. Use ‘w’ for color, ‘p’ for flower size, and ‘t’ for stem length – upper or lower case for each allele for all three traits.
