- Characterized by peloria.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
In the upper figure the style of the peloriate variety is shown as nearly straight, and the stamens undergo a corresponding change.
In cases where an habitually irregular flower becomes regular, the change in form is frequently associated with an alteration in direction both of the flower as a whole and, to a greater or less extent, of its individual members, for instance of _Gloxinia_, the normal flowers of which are irregular and pendent, there is now in common cultivation a peloriate race in which the flowers are regular in form and erect in position.
