Why Use Plant Color Charts?
The color of plant tissues reflects the influence of light, critical temperatures, and the chemical composition of the soil, especially when the soil is deficient in certain major or minor nutrient elements. Sometimes plant color reveals the genetic origin of plants, effect of toxic substances, or the action of parasitic organisms. Plant color charts provide scientists, students, and plant growers with information needed to respond to problems related to taxonomy, genetics, physiology, pathology, and plant nutrition.
