After experimental bruising, extracts from bruised tissue were analyzed using bidimensional paper chromatography. In stem and limb epidermis of all 3 spp. a series of flavonosides labeled the potential Sc series (Scp) increased or decreased after bruising. The Sc series is that group of flavonosides common to all light exposed aerial parts. The V series [those flavonosides common to vegetative organs] did not react to bruising. The petals, which are enclosed in a thick green calyx and protected from light, contain only flavonoid glycosides of the P series [those flavonosides found in the corolla]. The latter were insensitive to bruising.
