4 O'clocks & Transposons?

We have quite a weedy crop of 4 O'clocks growing around the edges of our
garden, and I have noticed that some of them show quite striking
variegation in the coloring of the petals of some of the flowers.  Has
anyone done any research on this effect?  It looks a sort of like the kind
of clonal inactivation that might be seen due to a transposon.

Sincerely,

Bruce Hubbard
