Cyanidin-3-xyloside and cyanidin-3-glucoside
have been identified as the major anthocyanin
pigments in Epacris impressa Labill. It has been
shown that the colour gradation evident. in flowers
in natural populations of E. impressa is due to
parallel quantitative differences in both pigments.
Investigation of other parts of the plant has shown
that the same two pigments are present though in
varying proportion.
