Abstract

Abstract Peroxidase phenotypes of two all‐agamospermous “species” of Eupatorium in the southeastern United States were examined. The result supported a hybrid origin (E. recurvans × E. rotundifolium) for E. scabidum and an autopolyploid origin from E. recurvans for E. mohrii. Notable variations of E. scabridum in its leaf morphology and peroxidase phenotype were suggestive of occasional sexuality in this agamospermous “species”.
