Caption: Macrophotograph of a tulip flower infected with the tulip breaking virus, a rod shaped virus belonging to the potato Y group. The virus infection does not destroy the plant, but interferes with the pigmentation of the flower. "Breaking" results in the loss of red pigment (anthocyanin) causing the flower to appear marbled. An uninfected tulip would produce an all red flower.
