A case of translocation heterozygosity has been discovered in gardenCanna. Morphologically the heterozygote is distinctive, being a pygmy type with small flowers which do not open. Cytologically it shows a ring or a chain of 4 plus 7 bivalents. The present observations reveal that rings disjunct usually in adjacent, and chains in an alternate manner. The subsequent course of meiosis is normal. The variety is totally sterile both after self and cross pollination. It has very likely arisen as a hybrid between two parents differing in one interchange.
