  • LD, long‐day conditions.

  • Percentages of plants with visible buds were scored at 21 days after germination, and bolting rates were calculated at 24 days after germination. Experiments were repeated three times, and the values are the means ± standard deviation (s.d.).

  • Significant differences at **< 0.01 between Col‐0 and mutants, and at *< 0.05 by two‐tailed t‐test. n, total numbers of plants used in statistical analysis.
